The Big Green Parenting Experiment

raising a healthy family in a toxic world

clifton park farm fest 2012

Sunday’s are always busy and go so fast. I feel like one week just ended and already we’re getting ready for the next. The weekends come and go and sometimes it just seems like all work and no play. Well, this weekend there happened to be a community farm fest event which was totally awesome! Local farms and orchards participated with family friendly events, petting zoos, tours, food, etc.

Today I just wanted to share some pictures from our outing to a local ranch which naturally raises and sells hormone free meat and poultry. It was so gratifying to roam around a real farm, talk to the farmers and see the animals in a farm setting. If you are ever able to go and visit a local, working farm, do it. It’s fun and educational for the kids and it’s great family time!

Schy had a great time! I wish that I had taken more pictures of the beautiful scenery. Maybe next year. And next year we will definitely hit the local alpaca farm!
I hope everyone enjoyed this gorgeous weekend!
