I'm so glad we went. It was a ton of fun, rain and all. And it was a great learning opportunity for my girl. We got to take a tractor wagon ride out to the pasture to see the cows, and learn some cool facts about them. Did you know one cow eats 70 to 80 pounds of grass per day? That's crazy! We also learned that they like for the female cows to birth once a year. They are pregnant for 9 months, so the poor things only get a 3 month rest then have to do it all over again! That would be like me finding out I was a month pregnant right now. Um, no thanks. Not quite ready for another just yet!
My skeptical girl refused to milk this cow, but settled for squeezing my wrist to help me milk it....?
Sister putting on her grumpy face. Humph.
We toured the farm, which included seeing where the cows are milked, the hen house and the pig pen. A few roosters escaped while we were in there and it was hilarious watching the little kids chase them around. My shy girl didn't of course, but hopefully someday when we have our dream farm she and Brother can chase chickens all day long.
Doesn't it look like this pig is puckering up for a kiss? So sweet.
(But not really. Who would want to kiss a pig?!)
We also got to sample lots of goodies, like cheese and yogurt, have a caricature drawn of our littles, dance to some blue grass music, and eat a yummy organic lunch. What fun.
So glad we live in a small town. We love it here.
