October Field Trip : Carlton Farms

We enjoy visiting a farm every fall as one of our field trips. Last year it was Burt's Pumpkin Farm - this year we headed back to Carlton Farms - a working dairy farm about an hour from our home. The weather was perfect with high's only in the 60's.

One of the highlights of this field trip is the hay ride out to one of their pastures. They put premium hay on the ride so the cows come running to eat. They are not shy at all about sticking their heads into the wagon and eating away. We also got the opportunity to see a baby calf {less than 24 hours old} up close.

Girls were so happy to have made it through the maze and they found all of the 12 checkpoints.

No field trip would be complete without a picnic lunch with friends.

Oh how fun! I love pumpkin patches that are farms & have more stuff to enjoy as a family. We still haven't visited our local pumpkin farm yet. I'm hoping (God willing) that we can make it next week. Maybe even ditch school & enjoy time as a family...where we are not rushed. LoL!
