Have you visited your local farm lately? We took a trip to ours and learned about veggies, giving back and kindness.
We danced our way in and were greeted by a wonderful quote.
“I would like to go to the fields and glean among the ears of grain behind someone who may show me kindness.”
The greatest part about our local farm is this – they only take pay-what-you-can donations for what you buy. Hard not to want to support such a great cause.
Grandma DiDi shops at this farm weekly and always gives a little extra. She takes the cub from time to time. I hope the cub learns to be as generous as her Grandmother who gives so much to others. And not just with monetary contributions, but with her time. She’s the greatest example of kindness to others.
“What are these?”, Grandma DiDi asked. The Cub explained that they were carrots hiding in the dirt!
Teaching youngsters where food comes from gives them greater appreciation and understanding for what they are eating!
The Cub headed to the chickens to see what they were eating. The farm feeds the chickens all their own produce. On the menu today – eggplant.
Grandma DiDi explained the difference between curly kale and dinosaur kale. The cub couldn’t wait to try some.
Fresh produce and sunshine!
Heading back to the farm stand to buy some produce.
Grandma DiDi and the cub decide on some dinosaur kale. The cub gets to pick her favorite bunch.
The Kitchen Cub was here… Get out and support your local farmers. Take your kids along for a fun adventure.
And guess what??? She ate the dinosaur kale raw when we got home. 😋
