Such a beautiful day today. We, no I, decided it was time for a trip back to Springfield Farm. Really, I was avoiding grocery shopping and this sounded like much more fun. So we visited a few animals, ran up a few hills, picked a few dandelions, and still managed to buy dinner -- locally made, and really good Bratwurst. The key lime pie ice cream I picked up for dessert was a huge hit too. Tomorrow morning? Duck egg omelets.
So what's new for this spring at Springfield Farm? Through June, they are hatching Narragansett turkeys for Thanksgiving. Lambs will arrive in July. And they are hopeful that Miss Petunia, one of the Tamworth pigs, may be pregnant. Hopeful? I'm guessing it's a bit hard to tell with a pig.
Hours are Thursday - Sunday, 10:00 am to 5:30 pm. Make sure you stop by the store to tell them you would like to visit the animals.
