Life on the Farm

Today I took the kids on a homeschool field trip to a family owned and operated organic fruit and veggie farm.  We had so much fun!  We made homemade ice cream - strawberry flavored, picked grape tomatoes, had tractor rides & more.

 The ice cream crank.

This is the sink to wash the lettuce and produce.

 Tomatoes sun drying.

Tomato picking.

The kids each got a cup to fill up and take home - yum!

A little pretaste by D.

I couldn't believe how many there were.

With her cup full, D is ready to move on.

Just a small part of the farm.

Another view.

 B's turn - actually she went first!

Thank you so much to this family for opening up their home and farm to us!
