Spring is my favorite season for farm Instagram—it’s when all the animals start to have babies. And it’s not just the sheep, cows, and horses you’d expect. It’s also the barn cats, sheepdogs, chickens, and ducks! 

So in addition to the lifestyle porn they generate year-round, farm accounts go into overdrive around now by pumping your feed full of grade-A lamb, puppy, and duckling content. Here’s where you can find it:

1) Big Picture Farm 

Very cute wife-and-husband team Louisa Conrad and Lucas Farrell moved to Southern Vermont and started their own goat farm. They sell goat’s-milk cheese and caramels and are also super good at photography. What more could you monsters want?

4) Lily Brook Farm 

Nina Fuller raises sheep on her farm in Hollis, Maine, and has a donkey, a mule, and some goats to keep them company. You can stay on the farm via AirBnb, too—which is awesome.

10) Airyolland Farm 

Janet McQuistin raises Highland cattle and four types of sheep on her New Luce, Scotland farm.
