Fun on a Farm

by Juliemara

It’s no secret that I like farms, I’d move to one in a heartbeat if I could and spend my days tending the gardens, handing the wash on the line and ideally riding horses with my girls. My husband doesn’t like horses, he would be tending to the livestock…


Ok enough of dreaming in lala land, I work in an office as does my husband and we live just a few steps from our neighbors is our suburban neighborhood, it’s a great place to be, it’s just fun to dream a little.


Since we can’t actually like and work our own farm at this pint in our lives we like to visit them as often as possible and lucky we live in Georgia so there are thousands of family farms within an hour or two of the city. Many of which while were once thriving agriculture businesses have seen hard times in the last decade with several years in a row of drought combined with a bad turn in the economy. In an effort to make it through these hard times many of these farms turned to AgriTourism. They opened their farm to the public, people like me who find being in the country on the wide open spaces of farm fields calming and rejuvenating.
Similar to the apple orchard we visited a few months back, this past weekend we visited Southernbelle Farms in McDonough, Georgia. Jimmy and Kathy Carter have transformed thier once largley cropgrowing farm into endless family fun with a corn maze, bounce mound and bounch house, a play ground animals to pet, pig races and more. It’s a big open space perfect for letting your little ones run wild on a early fall day.

Our Friends and their son Jack who is just a few months older than the girls met us for a day at the farm.







The bounce mound was so much fun and we had it all to ourselves.


Then it was time for a lemonade break, the girls loved their first taste of homemade lemonade.


Up next was the corn house, like sand but not as sticky and fun to play in. The only problem was there was corn all down babies diapers!


The horses and goats were also a big hit.


There was a hayride and lunch and cow train! We could have spent a whole other day there but babies only last so long. We will certainly be visiting again next year.
