Through the course of the week they had delved into an assortment of farming experiences-
caring for baby goats
putting hay up in the barn
getting sugar wood for next year's season
feeding animals and mucking the barn
They quickly found out what mud boots were and why they do not have shoe laces on them. They learned that pumpkin can actually be edible or at least easily disguised, and that baby goats really are cute. The moms left with hopes of garden boxes in their yards and new recipes to try.

Many thanks to Fat Toad Farm, Fat Rooster Farm, Neighborly Farm, and Hampton Fiber Mill for their time and enthusiasm as they shared their lives and farms with us during our week and many thanks to the families who sacrificed much in order for their child to visit with us.
