"Dairy cows in a barn at Noblehurst Farms in western New York. The cows might be accustomed to snow squalls that swallow their land, but the wintry weather was a shock to some of Noblehurt's farmworkers: refugees who grew up working on farms some 7,500 miles away, in Bhutan. After more than 100,000 people of Nepalese ancestry were expelled from the southern part of the country by Bhutan's king in the 1990s, many spent years in refugee camps in Nepal. Now, 23 refugees have taken part in the Refugee Milker Training Program, a state-run initiative that teaches refugees in New York how to milk cows. @brendanbannonbrendanbannon photographed Noblehurst Farms while on #nytassignment in Linwood, New York. #🐮" By nytimes on Instagram.
