Yep, that’s exactly what we saw last weekend when farming friends hosted their final Chancetown Farm Day festival of the season. It was held every Saturday in October.
This was the second annual event held by this family to introduce children and their parents to farm life.
Sure glad we made it home in time.
There were plenty of family fun events from bobbing for apples, playing in a corn bin, pumpkin picking (and carving), a corn maze and hayride.Mama Pig (the name fit) was busy tending to her week-old family of 11 piglets. They were named – we were told – bacon, ham, sausage. But, they won’t be leaving home for quite awhile.
This was a wonderful local family event for all. Even the weather cooperated with cool temperatures and a beautiful sunny afternoon.
The cows enjoyed the attention and snacked on pumpkin fresh from the field.
Meanwhile Gertrude, Mildred, and Henrietta were busy having – pardon the pun – a hen party.
Although Grenville and I only raise veggies on our little mini-farm, The Frog & PenguINN, we can appreciate all the hard work that this family invests in this event and are glad they open their farm to share – we had fun too!
