Day on the Farm

A proper Spring day in the countryside today as we visited a localish dairy farm.  Making sure the photo for the link is a cute one.  This calf was less than 4 hours old 🙂

Then there were chickens, geese and ducks to feed and eggs to collect.

After lunch while we watched a video about the farm we got to try some of the farm-made ice cream.

Then there was time for a tractor ride around the fields and village.  Here’s some of the views.20150318_48
