A Farm Field Trip

This morning, with my son's preschool, we headed to the town of Corbett, Oregon, for a field trip at an amazing farm. We first had to make sure to wear our farm attire (straw hats of course!)

The kids learned about some of the plants grown on the farm. Here they are looking at blueberry bushes. Yum!

There may or may not have been some hand holding.....

The kids had a tour of the farm and saw chickens (and baby chicks!), a peacock, goats, sheep and donkeys (and with dread locks no less!). I have never seen such cute donkeys before. Honest.

And there were also baby goats to feed! As long as they didn't try to eat your hair...
The morning ended with some gardening and the children planted pumpkins that they will harvest in October. This farm made me realize how much I want to have a little farm of my own one day.... with luck, it will happen! Pin It Now!


  1. Yay! Great photos! I'm excited to go back!

  2. Fun! Ben wants to move to Corbett :) I said okay as long as we get some goats.
