Black Island Farms

We went on a great preschool field trip today to the Black Island Farms in Syracuse. It was awesome! First we got to go on a "hay ride" minus the hay! While on the ride we got to see where they grew their feed corn, onions, cabbage, carrots, sunflowers, squash and of course pumpkins! I had no idea that carrot tops could grow so tall! It was a carrot tree! Then the kids got to pick out their own pumpkin and cut them off of the vine. Isaac and Lucas were in heaven!

After our ride we got to "play". And play we did! They had several huge slides, small slides, a hay maze, a corn maze, a steer roping area, a pumpkin bounce house, teeter totters, a "cow" train, and lots of farm animals! (Of course I avoided the goats!)

It was one of the greatest field trips we've done! We all loved it!!

Cute pictures! That looks like so much fun. But now I'm curious. What do you have against goats?

Too fun! I'm glad you invited our group to come along! We loved it! Definitely have to go there again next year!

You and Aberforth just would not have been a good match, that's all there is to it.
