Fall Farm Field Trips 2015

We went to three different farms this fall. First, our entire homeschool co-op which consists of around 30 children and 8 adults, went to Black Island Farm which is located an hour north of Salt Lake City. They took us on a wagon ride, explaining what crops they grow and even let the kids taste some of the produce. The tractor took us to a field of pumpkins and everyone got to pick out a pie pumpkin to take home. After the wagon ride the kids got to play in a huge field of slides, swings, hay pyramids, a cow train, bouncies, and even got to see some farm animals. A couple of weeks later we went to Wheeler Farm with the Rodriquez family and enjoyed walking around looking at the many different animals they care for. Finally at the end of October, we went to Petersen Family Farm with a few friends and the kids got to play in the corn pit, climb a hay pyramid with slides, feed some goats and pigs, and pick out pumpkins. It was a busy and fun fall!
