We recently had a rare Friday afternoon off with absolutely nothing to do (laundry, dishes, cleaning, etc. don't count here) so we packed up and headed over to our town's community farm to make lots of new animal friends!
Here are three quick reasons why we love this place: 1) it's free 2) it's all organic and 3) it is super toddler/kid friendly. They even have a toddler garden where everything is at Amaia's level and perfect for exploring. She was in heaven! This is Amaia's first time ever seeing chickens, cows, pigs, and goats, so it was truly an honor to witness her discovering such a new world for the first time. There was a lot of hooting and hollering coming from her direction. This is something I never thought about before being a mom, so I truly treasure moments like this.
I can remember coming here as child myself to learn about making maple syrup and how to plant seeds, so I'm super excited to bring Amaia here. They offer tons of educational programs for kids & adults, so it's a great family place. They also sell organic produce harvested onsite, seedlings, eggs, maple syrup, meats, wool, and livestock.
Have a local community farm in your area? Be sure to check them out! It's basically my life dream to be a farmer, so it's fun to pretend for the day, right? Not to mention, supporting local farms is super important!
Until next time!
