Life close to Swiss farms

If you decide to spend some days in Switzerland during the spring or summer months a visit to a farm is a mast.

This is my favorite time of the year because all animals are out, eating and relaxing in beautifully manicured loans around their barns and green mountain fields.

Every week I take walks around the many farms close to were I live, in many places in Switzerland farmland can still be pretty close to urban areas.Walk paths very often go thru, or very close to the farms.

I enjoy hearing the sound coming from the bells around the necks of sheep and cows here. If you happen to be outside late at night you can hear little bells echoing around you.

After returning from a trip to a crowded city or after a stressful day it is quite peaceful to look at these beautiful animals eating and relaxing. To walk around them has a relaxing effect on me.

Many these farms have small stores were they sell their own products. In off-hours you can purchase products inside clean and well organized “vending machines”; considering that in Switzerland everything is closed on late Saturday and during all of Sunday, these machines can be very handy.

Now we are approaching the colder months and the animals will soon be spending their days inside. The sound of bells at night will soon disappear, a clear sign winter is not that far away.
