We love Fall at our house! Before it gets too cold we had to get out to the farm for kettle corn, hayrides and pumpkins!

Strawberries, babies and one brave pig!

The largest strawberry festival in Northern Virgnia draws families to the fields. Great Country Farms hosted hayrides to the u-pick strawberry fields that were first come first serve.

The farm holds the Strawberry Jubilee in Bluemont Virginia every year. Loved running into colleague Jessica Doyle and her daughter who tore it up in the pie eating contest! One of my favorite parts.. the adorable Diaper Derby! Some of the babies didn’t get too far… and Adora is still mad mommy didn’t let her enter. There’s always next year 😉 Read more

Day at the farm

Breathtaking. It’s the best word to describe the view in Bluemont Virginia. This past weekend I took Adora to Great Country Farms for their annual Easter Egg hunt and Marshmallow Harvest. It  was such a special day. In addition to meeting the Easter Bunny we got to feed the farm animals like the emu and ponies. The cutest sight were the new litter of piglets.. who had me empathizing with momma pig see pic and LOL! Great Country Farms is open throughout the year for families and has a gazillion things for kids to do. I plan to return to check out the vineyard for a little wine tasting when things get warmer. I love discovering new nuggets of fun in the area. It really is like a whole new world just a scenic car ride away. Watch my report on WUSA9’s morning show below…
