Farm Tour!

This weekend we participated in New Leaf's yearly farm tour. I was so excited, I had been looking forward to this for a couple of weeks, and it was so fun!
This year we headed to Monticello and visited four different farms. The weather was cool and sunny making for a perfect day to be outdoors. We drove to Golden Acres Ranch first where we took a hay ride, met lots of chickens, sheep and goats and the Little One even got to ride on the horse tire swing. Our Little One was so excited about those chickens! She would touch one and get so excited, it was pretty cute.

Meeting the chicken!

After the ranch we made our way to Green Meadows farm There we saw a really neat greenhouse, vegetable gardens and lots of blueberry bushes.
Our next stop was the Monticello Vineyard and Winery . We set up our picnic blanket and ate lunch on the grounds and took a tour. It is such a beautiful piece of land.

Our last stop of the day was Caney Branch Farm. I think this may have been my favorite, there were turkeys, ducks, chickens, geese, horses, cows, sheep and bees! The Little One LOVED the turkeys and every time they gobbled she would get so tickled. They make their own honey from the bees and yarn from the wool, it was just a neat place.

Here the Little One is signing 'more'...she wanted more gobbling!
