Annual Pancake Breakfast

Tables all set for pancake breakfast
  Columbia Land Conservancy held their annual member and volunteer Pancake Breakfast in Triform's beautiful Phoenix Center on a bright but frigid Saturday morning. We have had a good experience welcoming CLC to use the Phoenix Center as a venue for their annual celebration before, and were glad to host this lovely event again.

More than 200 people were in attendance to share in the delicious pancakes, sausage and ham and to hear Triform's Bell Choir perform. The scent of coffee drew people into the friendly atmosphere of the Phoenix Center, where music and chatter filled the air. As it was close to St. Patrick's Day, the Bell Choir played a celtic song and a welcome Spring melody. It was very charming to see Akiko's (the Bell Choir conductor) two children (Yoshiya and Ayaka) playing cello and bells respectively, and to see new student Molly, and proud day student Brandon, debut in the choir. In the foyer, Triform marketplace sold craft items and we were able to forge new relationships with people who had never been to Triform before.

While we talk, Max is busy herding heifer calves born this spring to nurse with their mothers.He explains that Triform’s herd is a mixed one, combing a variety of breeds, including Jersey, Devon, and Swiss Brown cows. Once the calves are seen to, we move on to milking. I learn right away that Triform’s cows are more than just livestock; each has their own name and distinct personality. Lily introduces me to Stormy, a very sweet Holstein that I’m told is one of the cows most beloved by the community.As we settle in to milk, slowly filling our pales, Max elaborat…
