Outside a small village near Klaipeda, Lithuania is a working farm that appears to be of a bygone era. The scene is idyllic, almost make believe, like stepping back in time.
A small stream cuts through the low-lying pastures that feed the one horse and one cow. The fields are cultivated with a plow pulled by the horse. The cow provides milk. The surrounding forests provide wood for fencing, building and wood burning stove. Toilets are modern flush toilets, but in out-buildings. The main house has electricity and a satellite dish on the roof.

Thought for the Day: Farming looks mighty easy when your plow is a pencil and you’re a thousand miles from a cornfield. Dwight D. Eisenhower
