FC: An Afternoon at Parlee Farms
1: Parlee Farms grow fruits and vegetables in season, and has other things people can enjoy. | Last October 17, 2010 we went to the Parlee Farms in Tyngsboro, MA. Bob Lin's wife, Kathy, offered to take us around after attending their church in Lowell.
2: The first thing we did was to take the free hay ride around the farm.
3: The hay ride allowed us to see the different fruit-bearing trees and crops during the season such as apples and pumpkins.
4: These were the wheel and tractor cab that pulled the wagon the passengers rode in. It's huge! The wheel is bigger than Katrinka!
6: Inside the farm is Annie's Animal Barns filled with young farm animals like goats and sheep to feed and pet.
7: ticklish | Once we held out our hands, the goats came running to lick the food from our hands.
10: "You look like the friendly Baba I love to read about in my school books!"
12: There were two goats on top of this 20 feet platform. We put food in a pail that goes up by a pulley, so that they could eat on top of the trees.
13: This was definitely the best part of our time in the farm. Katrinka just loved feeding the animals!
14: Katrinka rode a mini tractor around the track like an enthusiastic farm girl.
16: running, jumping & playing on bales of hay
17: How fun and exciting to run on top of hay!
18: From Parlee Farms, we stopped by a corner we did not realize was a cemetery, to enjoy the beauty of the trees in their bright golden color!
19: Katrinka on a carpet of autumn leaves
20: we spent some moments walking on the carpet of golden leaves and tossing them. w
21: we toss in celebration of beauty and life!
