I had such a wonderful experience with Lin's family. Lin's family became my own; they cared for me and made me feel incredibly welcome. I enjoyed cooking with them (when they let me!) and working alongside them picking grapes and cleaning out fields. They were also kind enough to make vegetarian meals for me. It was such a coincidence that I was backpacking with Walden as my guide and I happened upon this farm named after the very same book. And I loved little Walden, the cat I was able to name that came to ward of the critters that lurk in the straw house. I gave advice where I thought improvements could be made and truly enjoyed my time there. I hope to find my way back to this Farm one day in the future.
