Farm Visits

Spring 2004, before we moved to Viroqua, we hosted visits to our ‘hobby farm’ from Twin Cities homeschooling families. The families arrived bright and early in the morning so that they could participate in farm chores: together we fed and watered animals, collected eggs and milked the goats. The visits were a wonderful mixture of handling the animals and finding out what it means to care for them, as well as work in the garden such as planting potatoes.

 

 

When they got home, Jacob and Aaron drew their impression of their visit.
