200 year-old house on 25 rocky acres in high country upstate NY and SO many highbush blueberries!

Here they are!
I realized on the way over (an hour's drive) that if I want to start with purebreds, I shouldn't even be going to see these half-breeds. I knew that the moment I saw them it would be all over for me. And it was.
They're a month old now. I'll bring them home in another month or so. Their mom is Alpine (lots of milk) and their dad is Nubian (higher butterfat and protein). That's mom to the right of the babies.
I'm calling them "the babies" because they don't have names yet. Whee - I'll get to name them!
