Around our City ~ Farm Tour #2
First stop is the chickens. We get to feed them the scraps from the farm...
And perhaps get to see a few eggs being collected.
Next stop, hay ride to the apple orchard. This took much longer than we could have walked it, but it was super fun for the kids to get pulled by a real working tractor!
At the apple orchard we picked enough for two gallons of cider to take home. One to freeze and one for right now.
And of course, what is cider, without a toddler bitten apple or two between the tree and the press?
We carried the apples back to the farm house to be cleaned, pressed and bottled.
Terry's Berries is a wonderful farm and only 7 miles from our house. This is where I go when my shares at the CSA stop coming in the winter. They have a little farm store open on Tuesdays and Wednesdays year round that provides food from local vendors as well as some imports that are organic. Their staff are friendly, their products are AMAZING, and they have lots of things to see and do during the Autumn months.
