Meet your farmer

Sunday, September 16 was Meet Your Farmer day. There were 60 farms in NS with open houses. This is such a great opportunity to see working farms in our communities. 

I looked at the list and chose one close to Truro. The kids were in heaven because they had all of their big equipment on display for the kids to sit in. 

Doesn't she look tiny? But she was in heaven touching everything.

I chose this farm because they have a dairy operation. Unfortunately we didn't get to see that part. But we did see cows.

We went on a little tractor ride through the fields of corn.

More tractor fun.

This farm also has a grape/wine component. They organized a grape stomping competition. Peter and Gaelle were amused by the hilarity of that. It was a big sticky mess by the end of it. All the teams were trying to see how much juice they could produce.

It was a beautiful day enjoyed by all.
