Symptoms to Take Notice of in Children

The NHS has been facing ever-increasing pressures in recent years, with slashed budgets, staff shortages and lack of resources taking its toll on the quality of care. One of the many ways we commonly see the impact of these pressures is in waiting times for GP…

How to Through A Larger Than Life Small Wedding on a Budget

This one is as simple as crowdfunding your honeymoon. It might sound strange at first, but do you really need another blender or set of dinner plates? Instead of having your guests purchase a bunch of things you’ll end up trying to return anyway, why not let them chip in for…

My dad wanted to take the kids to Farm Tour Day in his area of NY state this past weekend. We knew right away that Cutie Pie would absolutely love it! We toured 3 farms and had a great time while learning more than we thought possible about the different types of animals you can find on farms.

BMR was the first farm we visited. We describe it as an alpaca farm, but they had alpaca, a llama, goat and sheep in a nice tidy barn and it seemed they all wanted to greet us! As you can see below, we were able to pet the alpaca - so soft, and much smaller than I thought they'd be, and much more loving, as Cutie Pie found out first hand! We were able to pet the goat and sheep, too, but the kids were a little scared of the llama, so we don't know if it's soft or not. Below: Llama; alpaca kissing Cutie Pie; goat; sheep

The second farm we went to was a working family farm with cows and big farm equipment, much to the delight of Cutie Pie (bottom left)! We were amazed at how clean they can keep a cow barn. It was milking time and all the cows were being herded to the milking area (bottom right). They were just waiting there watching their cow-friends be milked and as soon as a stall opened the next just came right in like they couldn't wait to get milked. Did you know a cow can give 80 pounds of milk a day? This farm also had a fruit and veggie stand and gave out tasty samples of honey cookies - yum! Below: calves; Grampa and Cutie Pie looking at combine; kiddos and Daddy; cows being milked


The last farm we stopped to tour was a working farm with a fruit and veggie stand. The tour was actually of a tomato greenhouse and huge garden. It was absolutely amazing how many tomato plants can fit into a greenhouse! They grow indeterminant tomato plants, stringing them up on vines to the ceiling of the greenhouse. We were told one plant could produce anywhere from 40 to 60 tomatoes! The camera battery died by the time we toured this so we don't have any photos to show of this, so I will end this post with the last photo we were able to take, which was at the previous farm. Here's Sweet Pea saying "Bye bye farm."
