The synopsis from the search page gives us a little background on this ghostly farm.

Beginning in 1990, the hybrid poplars grown at the Boardman Tree Farm provided a mesmerizing—and inviting, to some—roadside attraction on Highway 84 in eastern Oregon. The farm’s neatly organized 25,000 acres provided lumber for furniture, veneer wood, and pulp. In 2016 the farm was sold, with a third of it to be converted into a dairy farm, while the remaining land is already being cleared for corn and potato farming. While the tree farm still stood, it was compelling enough to locals that the company that owned the farm started arranging tours of the evenly spaced woods.

The Search Pages that the Info Boxes link to also have some added content tailored specifically to the days page.

Search Engines are often be seen as minimalist and boring with their slimmed-down search box centric homepages, 10 blue links and flat grey website descriptions. (this is true) I appreciate that Bing adds a little bit of freshness to its homepage with a new focus each day. Especially compared to…

I hope you find Bing’s daily homepage refreshing as I do!
