Farm Field Trip

Matthew’s class went on a field trip to Great Country Farms a few weeks ago. Apparently, it rains almost every year. This year was no exception.

We learned about the life cycle of a strawberry, took a tractor ride around the fields, and fed the animals. After a picnic lunch, the kids headed home on the bus. Everyone got a sunflower seed in a pot and a small container of strawberries to take home.

Learning about strawberry plants.

The kids were split into animal groups. I was with the pigs.

I'm pretty sure these are donkeys.

Before we got there, the farm had a little mishap with one of the tractors.

Rotten wood + heavy machinery = bridge collapse.

Naturally, this was the favorite part of the farm trip.

Hey, animals you can see any day. A tractor fallen through a bridge? That’s something special.
