Chapel Hill Creamery employee Allison Sturgill trains a team of ox on the farm. The twin bulls were born in 2009 and pull sled, carts and wheeled wagons around the farm. Sturgill hopes to have them in the Chapel Hill-Carrboro Holiday Parade this year. "Being a small farm, draft animal power is a wonderful thing on a farm like this," Sturgill said.
I was taking photos of the media tour at Chapel Hill Creamery when I came upon this scene. I was really struck by the contrast between the ox team and cars - it seemed like we were caught in a time warp. - Christine T. Nguyen
