One Fun-Filled Day on the Farm

On a warm September day,
we traveled to Cherry Crest Adventure Farm
for Homeschoolers Week.
We were blessed to attend this special week
for homeschoolers last year,
and were excited to go again.



The farm offers a wonderfully Amazing Maize Maze.  
This 5-acre field of corn challenged our directional skills. 


Inside the corn maze

In the past, we have spent a couple of hours in the maze
finding all the map pieces and answers
to the 'Kernels of Knowledge' word puzzle. 
This year, we wanted to find our way through the maze
as quickly as we could.

Some of our children helping to chose our route

Along the way, we took a few breaks to play.

Forty minutes later, we emerged.
It is our family's record time.



 Next, we visited the Farm Animal Center.
We saw cows, pigs, sheep, goats, chickens, bunnies, and more.
We fed the goats by hand and a conveyor belt.


 We listened to a talk about bees & honey,
and investigated solar energy.


We took a farm tour,
and made butter.


We saw a Conestoga Wagon.


And took some time to enjoy the day.



It was wonderful!

  3. That looks so neat! We live in the city so we don't have farms to take the kids to, which makes me sad. Someday....

  6. Visiting a corn maze is such a fun fall activity! I haven't found one around here for the kids and I to enjoy but a few years ago we found one that was really challenging. A bit too challenging if you really want to know.:) Thanks for linking up to Field Trip Friday! Blessings!
