We spent a recent morning here……
these hens make me miss "my girls"
his goal was to get the chicken to perch on his shoulder (look familiar?)
We made a trip to Laurel Valley Plantation and had a fun little adventure. The little store front offers local history and local goods….. fig preserves and honey and jams. The man that ran the place let the girls look for eggs… they found three and got to keep them. Yum. Fresh farm eggs are simply the best! We all enjoyed our time there walking around and looking at all the old equipment….. being followed by the hens and a "lucky" turkey….. the little farm kitty was carried around the entire time by one of the kids. This was such a neat little place to visit…. free too! Our only cost was the four bags of chicken food for $1 each. I am so happy to have a local place to get my "farm fix". Every time we visit a place like this my heart swells up and whispers "someday….. someday".
Fresh cool air…. goats…. chickens…. leaves crunching beneath our feet. It doesn't get much better than this.
