DG Harry's_CROP

Westborough – Harry's has been a local favorite since 1946, but it seems more popular than ever. Every seat was taken when I arrived with a friend on a recent weeknight to chow down on something delicious. We waited just long enough to get familiar with the special board before we were seated in a booth under a painting of a smiling clam, surrounded by families and groups of friends enjoying Harry's classic comfort food.

Holy cow, the Belties are back!

May 31st, 2012

This Belted Galloway, or "Oreo Cow," is enjoying an afternoon grazing in the fields.

Southborough – Spring is here and the Belted Galloways are back in the fields on Breakneck Hill Road. There is a new, rare addition to the group, a red Beltie calf – born to two black parents who must have each been carrying a red gene. The cows enjoy grazing along the grassy rolling hills and amongst the apple trees, basking in the sun and feasting on the lush grass.

Chris Molinaro, vice president of the Breakneck Hill Cow Fund, and caretaker of the Belties, applies liquid bug repellant to the cows – a new formula which turns purple when applied. Molinaro said that the repellant is “super helpful” and lets him see which cows he has covered and which he has missed.
