Where my friends live: Emily and Dave, Wolfville Nova Scotia (part 2)
December 13, 2012 § Leave a comment
If you have ever wondered what heaven looks like, simply head on up to Rocky Top Farm with Emily and Dave–they can show you. I got to spend a couple weekends out there when I was living in Nova Scotia, and it was all the things you’d hope it would be. They introduced me to their helper/pet Peggy the horse who was the cutest (but maybe a bit confused), there were pigs and chickens, lakes, bonfires, gardens and basically all the things I have ever dreamt were good. The real truth is, though, that actually, Rocky Top is just a farm. It is Emily and Dave themselves, governed by their selflessly generous nature, easygoing disposition and the right balance of hard work and hedonism, that makes whatever roof you visit them under seem so heavenly.
Recently my friends have relocated to a little cottage in the centre of town for the winter months, and have sent me some photos of their adorable second home to share with you. The farm is still running while Dave continues to sell his delicious organically grown garlic, but for a blowy winter in the Nova Scotian countryside, I couldn’t imagine a sweeter place to call ones home.
P.S. If you are around the Halifax/Wolfville area, Dave’s Garlic is available for purchase at 10$/pound. Click on any of these words for more information, questions about orders, shipments or stories about escaped pigs (maybe).
