Today, after everyone milked the cow, we went to Heritage Days (combined with Grandparents Day) at the little school in town where I displayed:
–Wool from our sheep
–Homemade hard cheese
–Milk from our cow
–Corn cob jelly and tomato butter
–Farm-fresh multi-colored eggs
I had the kids touching the raw fleece to feel the lanolin. The butter display was a demonstration with kids shaking the jars as they went by–pretty soon we had butter, but they kept shaking for two hours as they came by then opening the jar with amazement to see the butter inside.
This was absolutely adorable, watching the kids touching the raw wool, handling the soap and candles, awed by the process of making butter. I also had corn cob jelly and tomato butter available for taste-testing.
It was so much fun!!
Then we (me and my company here as we prepare for the party–CindyP and Natalie) stopped by the old farmhouse to visit Georgia and take a tour!
It’s the eve before THE BIG PARTY. We’re making our lists and checking them twice and getting ready for BIG FUN tomorrow!! (There will be a LOT of pictures!) I’ll update as I can.
