Just Cows Being Cows


The cows pictured below are all part of the making of the best ice cream in the world. Lapp Valley farm is in New Holland, Pennsylvania and home to these cows. The farm itself is open for visitors to watch the milking process, explore the grounds, and even bottle-feed the calves. Visitors come from far and wide to take home these cows’ hormone-free milk, butter and most importantly ice cream. I have traveled to this farm, enduring the three hour drive from home, just to have a cone of their savory ice cream. Trust me when I say it is worth it. This photo series is dedicated to the documentation of the beings that make this wonderful experience possible.

GreenHawks Media

GreenHawks Media is Miami University’s first environmental publication. Our goal is to unite green initiatives on campus and in the community. We hope to make a difference in a journalistic fashion by spreading news and information as well as educating our readers. We would like to present GreenHawks Media as a central place for groups and individuals to share their ideas, concerns, and initiatives. Individually and in small groups, efforts are made to make a difference and promote change. While one person may have a concern, another is researching it and needs assistance. While one initiative is being made in a science department, a similar idea is being discussed in a local business. GreenHawks Media provides the opportunity for shared visions to come together. We are journalists, writers, photographers, and scientists. We are students. We are motivated to use media to contribute to the change that our generation needs to make in order to protect and understand the planet we call home.
