Autumn in (Upstate) New York

Our 2015 season is winding down. Again this year, we learned a lot about farming, business, people, goats, our land, and ourselves. I am looking forward to a winter of rest and reflection. In the meantime though, we are all embracing autumn. The leaves are at peak color this week.
Apple trees are laden with fruit, which is the goats' favorite thing about autumn. Juniper has the best nom-nom face:

Days are getting shorter, and we are down to once-a-day milkings, which means a little more sleep. The sun does not rise until after 7:00 now, but the sunrises have been magnificent on our east-facing hill.
The sunsets are quite lovely too. There's still some autumn to enjoy, and we are, well, we're milking it!
