Milkmaid Braids

If you’re writing a book about cows, you of course get out your camera when your daughter, book designer, and recipe tester come to work in milkmaid braids. When Carol saw what we were doing, she piped up, “Hey, last night on The Voice, Christina Aguilera, as well as one of the contestants, had milkmaid braids.”

Here’s a clip of the contestant singing, then Christina (Voice judge), then our own three stars, Meg, Karina, and Saralou. Oh, and for our photo-of-the-day, former farmhand Samantha in milkmaid braids (from summer before last) after helping milk our cows.

    I love these braids! They are so beautiful and becoming to these young women.

  2. CJ Armstrong says:

    Beautiful braids! I think the MJ Farm milk maids are THE MOST BEAUTIFUL!!!

  3. Debbie Fischer says:

    Beautiful Models and their braids are fabulous!

  4. Beth says:

    When we were watching The Voice I looked at my husband and said “I really like Christina’s hair”. And look at your girls (and my daughter)! They are beautiful!

  5. Chrissy says:

    My momma braided my hair like that when I was a tow-headed little girl. She got the idea from two sweet, fiftyish, sisters that wore their graying, long hair in milk-maid braids. I have always been partial to the style.
