Farm Tour 2011 - Part 1

Every year for the past 10 years or so, we go on a local Farm Tour.  Three or four farms open themselves up to the public so we can see what it is that they do there.  It is usually the first Saturday in October, but this year the farms needed the date changed, so it was last weekend.  The weather was gorgeous and we had a great time.  Even if Daddy had to work and wasn't able to join us.

I took so many fun photos on our annual Farm Tour this year that I decided to break the tour into 2 separate posts.  I don't want to overload you!  :)

On our first farm we saw ...

a miniature farm display
It was huge and incredible.  The creator of it has to take it almost all apart when he travels from place to place.  He said only the buildings and the cows are stationery.  And it takes about 3 hours to set up each time.  That's dedication!  This is only a small section of it.

Lots of corn fields

And lots of corn

Many, many tractors

and some baby cows.

I attempted several times to get a good photo of all 3 kids together.  This is probably the best one.  They don't always like to cooperate.  :)

The second stop on the tour was a greenhouse.  

They had lots of cool vegetable displays
if you mouse over the pepper photo, you'll see a cool new technique I just learned to do this week called twirling.  Fun!

We got to taste some jams and jellies
We brought home a jar of apple butter and a jar of pumpkin butter.  Yum!

And, of course, there were so many beautiful mums.
Photos from the other two farms will have to wait for another day, so stay tuned.  :)
