Going to see the milkman

Yesterday Jill told me that the homeschool group was going on a field trip to the Milkman's place. She asked if I'd like to go along. Of course!!

"Yee-Haw! Nana is coming on ouw field twip!" Sophia burst out!

So this morning we went to the dairy farm.

The Milkman's Wife told us about their farm. This is a 3rd generation dairy farm.
The Milkman told us that his cattle produce about 8 gallons of milk a day. But in peak production period (90 days after a calf is born) they can produce up to 16 gallons a day. That is a lot of milk! (I hope I got that information right)

What do the children see?
A new born calf - born just hours before and still wobbly on its' feet.

They have a barn that people can rent for weddings, rehearsal dinners, parties. Very neat!
At the end of the tour, the Milkman's Wife handed out home-made chocolate chip cookies and fresh milk! Mmmm! Thanks Kerry!

They have a store here and you can buy fresh milk, eggs, cheese curds, cupcakes... And a coffee bar to boot with free WiFi so you can do the coffeehouse thing!

The kids found the tree house and playground!

I could not resist this picture of the little Milkman's daughter!
Thank you Dan and Kerry for the wonderful fun morning you provided for us!
