|Jessica had 50 chickens in Africa!|
We headed out down 250 E to Ted's Last Stand. We enjoyed the diversity of Ted's farm; the lovely flowers, Beehive, monster Rooster, and crazy sweet Donkeys. A lovely setting with a pond, Ted's was a great place to start the tour.
We hated to leave Ted's but next we traveled to Grubby Girl Meeting House Farm. I always buy a few shrubs from Amanda. I love her house and beautiful gardens and could easily live in such a secluded and peaceful place. Her soaps smell divine and each are a lovely farm theme design.
Off to Poindexter Farm where I brushed up on my chicken knowledge. An educational farm experience with loads of kids helping with the daily egg collection. Perfectly beautiful far reaching open countryside made you take a deep breath and appreciate life! A great farmer with some hands on for the kids.
|A pure red Zinnia|
We buzzed back West on I-64 to get to a farm on 20 S. On the way and after lengthy conversation about how long it took to get to Carters Mountain Apple Orchard, we zipped up the hill to grab lunch - homemade Apple Pie. I was happy to finally see this popular local attraction and the pie hit the spot. It was a little misty but this only added to the view. The fog rolled out long enough to get a wonderful peek at the surrounding mountains and valley. I can understand why they have Sunset on Carters every Thursday in the summer!
|One of the many Goats at Caromont Farm|
Our last stop was Caromont Farm where they raise Goats to make delicious cheese. Oh boy was that cheese GOOD. We were given a tour of the cheese making process and peeked into the cheese making room.
What a great way to spend a day.
