February 1 through April 16, 2011

Peg Alogs Becker of Jenison, Michigan specializes in nature photography and takes long walks with her husband. “God creates such incredible beauty… if we would only stop and look now and then.”  The Kent Trail, the Kal Haven Trail, the city, county, and state parks are all full of beauty and wonder.  With four incredible seasons, so strongly defined here in Michigan, it is a photographer’s paradise.

Fat Toaster Farm is owned and operated by Zach and Lindsay Oaster.  They specialize in Scottish Highland cattle, Jacob and Shetland Sheep, and mixed-breed, free-range chickens.  They also have rabbits, barn cats, and house cats.  These animals are the focus of the exhibit at the Coopersville Farm Museum.
