Today our class took a fieldtrip to Blue Heron Farm (in Grand Isle, VT) in order to learn a bit about raising livestock for meat, dairy, and other animal products. Blue Heron is a picturesque certified organic farm, and the people working there were quite friendly and helpful. We were given a tour in which everyone got to meet the sheep, ducks, chickens, and cows, as well as learn about the care that each kind required. There were also a fair amount of vegetables being grown there in a large greenhouse. All in all the experience was great, and it tied in perfectly to this week’s homesteading unit.
Thanks so much to Christine, Adam, Sadie, Delia, and Sophie!
