Last Fall, I spent some time in Normandy, France. If you’ve never been, I highly recommend it. Gorgeous and charming doesn’t really cover it, but it’s a good start. Part of my time in Normandy included a visit to a wonderful farm called Rabbit Hill. It’s the home and farm of a wonderfully talented writer, photographer, foodie and vintage seller, Cat. You should absolutely check her out here. If you have any interest in cooking, you’ve got to check out her Instagram feed too! Inspiration (I could only hope to cook like this!) for days. We were welcomed so warmly at the lovely Rabbit Hill, and had an absolutely delicious meal of pumpkin soup, a variety of French cheese and meats and warm cider as the scent of fresh lavender filled the room.We were also treated to a peek at Cat’s kitchen, which is an inspiration in and of itself.Lastly, and I think my favorite part of our visit, we met some of the animals who share the farm with their people. I fell in love with this cow. Really, I did. I LOVE cows. Cat writes beautifully about life on the farm, it’s gifts and challenges. This is Cat’s lovely Husband, who not only introduced us to some of the animals (I think this one might be a favorite), but introduced us to the beauty of Normandy (and ran us all around!!!)
Cat offers foodie workshops on the farm- so I know I’ll be back! Many thanks to Cat and her family for hosting us- it was a treat beyond measure.
