It's an old country schoolhouse that's been moved and renovated by the owners of the farm. I found out during our visit that the farmer's grandmother had attended this one-room schoohouse back in her day.

Teaching our children the importance of a good work ethic has been a big focus and challenge in our home lately. While they enjoyed the animals, I think it was even more valuable for them to see kids who were busy with lots of daily chore responsibilities.
We also want our children to understand and appreciate that what we eat takes a quite a bit of work to produce. It is not just a matter of plopping items into a grocery cart!
While we can't afford to buy the best of everything, certain items, like ethical meats, I believe are worth the extra cost. Furthermore, getting to see where our food comes from gives us both an education and greater peace of mind as we navigate the many choices involved in raising a family.
