On Thursday, September 3rd, Kelley and I headed just across the Mad River Valley to shoot the Inn at the Round Barn Farm. This is a beautiful Inn where we tried to get married back in 1992, but unfortunately, they were booked. It has one of only five round barns still standing in Vermont. Why Round barns? As Owner and Innkeeper Annemarie Defreest states, "It's because the devil couldn't catch you in the corners".

Two highlights for me on the shoot were filming the open while standing in the cupola atop the barn looking out over the views of the Valley, and making fresh apple cider for the first time. We loaded the apples into the masher, and then pressed the mash, releasing the golden brown cider. It truly is one of the tastes of Vermont. Oh, one more thing, getting chased by some cows while trying to herd them into place for the ultimate "Round Barn with Cows" shot. Although born and raised in Vermont, I do not connect with cows the way a true Vermonter should.

Look for the Vermont Spotlight video on our day at The Round Barn this spring.
