SEELEY’S BAY — Little one-year-old Charlie and his mom Lindsay Berry were visiting the barn one evening in January, watching Charlie’s father Brian Berry push feed to the cows.
“Charlie decided that he no longer wanted to be held, so I set him down and he started crawling across the barn floor towards his dad,” said Lindsay Berry, who quickly pulled out her phone to grab a photo.
That photo is the grand prize winner of the 18th annual Farmers Forum photo contest. This year’s theme was young and old on the farm. Lindsay Berry earned $200 for her winning photo.
“Charlie looked at his dad as he was crawling to him and I just kind of snapped it. I really wasn’t thinking much in the moment until I saw it after,” said Lindsay Berry.
The baby’s camouflage snowsuit was a gift from his grandma after he outgrew his last one. Charlie loves the farm animals, especially the cows and the dogs, said his mom. They visit the barn once a week.
There were 97 entries in this year’s photo contest. Next year’s photo contest theme is: Action on the farm.
