Where sheep are gently grazing...

Where sheep are gently grazing - The Active Acres Farm outside Newtown, NJ


At a working farm near Newtown. Absolutely beautiful fall late afternoon. The breeze carries the scent of pine, and it is comfortably cool. The children love the animals. They can pet them and get close. Particularly striking are the sheep grazing in the field. They are wearing their winter coats.

Five of my six grandchildren....on the old fence... and looking for crayfish with Uncle Paul

Very sweet, Murph. I hope to take my grandchildren to a similar place when they are old enough. Right now I have a 5 year old, a 3 year old, and 6-day-old twins, all girls, all irish names! I am blessed, indeed.

I love Fall! It looks like an idyllic way to spend some time. The twins are getting so big.
We have sheep, llamas, horses and cows around our house. I love watching them graze.
