I had to drive south to Kitchener last week for medical tests, so I was driving through some pretty nice farmland. The farms looked big and prosperous, all of the original barns expanded by additions or entirely new barns. Here's a selection of that agricultural landscape, very different from here in the valley.
These barns with silos are likely all dairy operations, with vastly expanded space for the cows.
Long low well-ventilated barns like this new one can be used because they don't need to store hay inside the barn with the new big round plastic-wrapped bales.
This barn is a brand new one near the valley, and doesn't even look like it's being used yet. I like the style.
And a big canyon between some large rectangular straw bales, likely left from a wheat harvest. They'll probably end up used for bedding in horse barns further south.
Beautiful countryside and barns. The red one with the yellow door is cheerful!ReplyDelete

Great collection of barn pictures. My favorite is the fist one.ReplyDelete
There appeared to be many of successful farms as I view the barns. The buildings are being well maintained even if thy might now be in use today.ReplyDelete
Another nice collection of barns!ReplyDelete
I find those barns quite amazing. They look like industrial enterprises! Dairy farms are quite different here as the cows graze outside all year round.ReplyDelete
Lovely photos , This is what a lot of the farms look like down this way to with the exception of the Amish ones that are more old fashioned looking . Thanks for sharing , Have a good day !ReplyDelete
Beautiful country! I love rural scenes but often there is no safe place to pull off the road.ReplyDelete

i hope your tests went well.
