The threat of snow and a winter weather advisory has everyone rushing to the store for eggs, milk, and bread.
(Those of you up north can laugh now...)
I am thankful that we are able to simply go to our barn and coop to get milk and eggs that are better quality than anything store bought.
If we need bread (which we rarely eat), I can make some.
It is such a simple concept, but is so lost to most folks.
Vivienne is 4 months old today and I am having so much fun with her. 🧡 My mom used to dress us alike which I always thought was kind of weird - until now. 🧡🧡🧡 Also, I heard that Milkbarn discontinued these nursing scarves but I’d totally love to keep twinning. Does anyone know where I can buy more, new or used?! 👯♀️ I was gifted this one from @madrosebainbridge totally obsessed! 🤩🤩

Today we’d like to highlight one of our oldest customers, Eldred Pires. While Eldred has been working closely with Modesto Dairy Solutions owner, Ryan, for nearly 20 years, it originally started long before that between Eldred and Ryan’s fathers. Eldred’s father, John B. Pires, migrated from the Azores in 1973 and started his family farm in Hilmar in 1981 with only 80 cows.
Today, you can find Eldred running the now 3,800 cow dairy with a 60 stall rotary (which is a generous jump from the 1800 cows they were milking prior to the rotary) and they have just reached quite a milestone - milking 500 cows an hour and producing 300,000 lbs of milk per day! While Eldred himself is a busy husband and father to four daughters, he hopes to fine tune the rotary enough to rise from 500 an hour to 530 in the near future.
Thank you Eldred, for trusting in us all of these years. We look forward to continuing our services with you! (First photo: Eldred Pires. Second photo: Eldred with the farm manager of 2 years Gary Silva, and Veterinarian of 14 years, Kevin Alvine)
Favorite Friday time! This may seem a little weird but here it goes. I absolutely love this little barn. It's served many purposes in its lifetime but I'm sure it's never been used as a photo staging area by the family that built this property. I've used it a ton as a staging area, for family pics and products. I just love the rustic look and the way my handmade pieces pop in the photos! Unfortunately when I asked my husband to bring it inside for the winter so I could continue to stage pretty photos, he said no. 😔 #simplyrusticbycrissy#handmade#shoplocal#chippypaint#milkbarn#chickencoop#photostagingarea
