Fall Farm Tour

It’s the perfect time of year for a farm tour! We started with coloring in the barn and meeting the barn cats. Then we headed out to meet the alpaca herd. Did you know the only time alpacas spit is when they are pregnant?

Next we met the chickens and fed them grain and meal worms, which are like candy to them. The children collected eggs in the chicken coop, picked and ate fresh apples, and then meandered around the pumpkin patch, where they all got to pick little white pumpkins. We explored the garden, did a little harvesting, and ate fresh Thai basil, lemongrass, ground cherries (which taste like pineapple), a variety of small tomatoes, lemon cucumbers, raspberries, and grapes.

At the end of the tour, we tried out a teleidoscope and looked at squash and gourds. It was fantastic adventure for the club! Many thanks to Apple Creek Farm for taking the time to host our group.
