The Farm

What's a week of learning about vegetables and fruits without going to the farm?  Our field trip this week was to Miller Farms, where they gave us a fantastic tour.  If you live in Colorado I'd highly suggest you do their Spring Festival.  It was great!  You do have to preregister with a group of 10 or more and plan on paying $5/person, but a personalized tour of their 1,000 acres was amazing!
 Riding on the tractor.
 Digging up a potato seed.
 They had baby goats...
 and baby pigs...

 and a cow.
 They loved feeding the goats!
 We also planted a flower and a bean.
 And we got a visit of their greenhouse, which was this building, and 3 more buildings all attached together.
 Afterwards we got to play.  This gigantic hay pile was calling all of the kids names!

 The old tractors were also fun to climb and play on! 
We had a fantastic time and are excited to go to another smaller and organic farm in a few weeks.  I just found some great farm themed printables over at 1+1+1=1.  Check them out here.


  1. Did you happen to get the details (care and type) regarding the bean and flower we planted.

    1. Penny - I didn't get those details. I let the kids plant the flowers directly into the ground yesterday and hope they'll survive :) I also have no idea about the beans - in fact, we haven't even watered ours yet...oops :) I'm sure if you contacted them (970-785-6133) they would be able to tell you. Good luck!
