Last weekend we continued our yearly tradition of heading over to a local dairy farm for some pumpkin picking excitement! It’s a great little set-up, with hay rides that take you out to the pumpkin patch & back, and some baby animals out for the kids to see & pet. Various seasonal harvest products, like Indian Corn bunches, gourds, squash, mini pumpkins, honey and other food items produced on the farm, are also for sale.
BUT, the most anticipated part of the day is always a visit to the Creamery, where some of the best home-made ice cream this Mama has ever tasted is served up! To add some cuteness to this yummy treat, each delightfully rich flavor is named after one of the farm’s Holstein cows. As my daughter would say, “deeeelicous”!
*Besides all the fun, it’s also a great way to support the local economy, since many area dairy farms are struggling with record-low milk prices while the costs associated with producing that very milk are continuing to rise.
I'm your not-so-typical SAHM to an amazing, brilliant little girl and wife to a pretty great guy who just happens to adore us! By sharing my (somewhat random) musings on this beautiful mess that is our life, I hope to take an honest look at the often crazy reality of being a mama/wife/girly girl/frugalista, all the while making sure I've got my lip gloss on & feeling fabulous! Please feel free to email me with any questions - thanks for stopping by!
