applewood farm Photo Contest! (with Prizes!)

Since we opened applewood restaurant back in 2004, we’ve always featured the work of local photographers on our walls.  We have tried to find photos that showed images of farms and farming, and so far we think we’ve done a pretty good job.

For some time, we’ve been bringing applewood farm products down to the restaurant and now, we’d like to bring applewood farm photographs there as well.

Here’s where you come in.

We’ve selected 15 photographs from our collection that we think might go well on the dining room walls.  There is only space for nine of them, however, and we need your help deciding which nine to frame and hang.

Please vote for your favorite image by responding with the photo number and/or name in the “Leave a Reply” section of this blog.  Please only choose one photo.

At the end of the contest, The nine photos with the most votes will be framed for hanging at applewood restaurant in Brooklyn.


One winner will be chosen at random to receive the 16″x20″ photo of his/her choice!

Contest ends at midnight on Sunday, August 11, 2013.

    I like the picture of BACON the best.

  2. Peter says:

    11. (It was 5 but that seemed like the obvious choice).

  3. Lucy says:

    I choose #10. Why? Because I think it’s the coolest — all the others are kind of typical farmy photos, which are AWESOME, but we’ve all seen pigs and goats and chickens roosting. But a cat in a fire pit? And it’s a funky fire pit. And it looks kind of foggy, which is just beautiful. The photo makes me want to be there and pet the cat on my lap while we sit around the fire. And therefore, this photo is the one I’d want hanging in my house.
