Green Gate Farms

One morning last week, our little playgroup made an outing to Green Gate Farms to check out their farm stand.

We got there just as the volunteers were setting up the little farm stand. It was small, just a single shelf of offerings, but charmingly arranged. There was no attendant, just a sign welcoming us and a list of the prices. Payment was on the honor system, with a box to place your payment in.

We had fun checking out the rest of the farm.

Did you know that pigs snore?

The farm dog was the kids' favorite part of the whole visit. They found a basket of dog-grooming supplies and set about making him pretty.

The dog ate up the attention. He did not want that brushing to end!

I actually didn't buy any veggies, but I did pick up a bottle of local honey. Tony's allergies are bad right now, and several friends have recommended local honey to help his symptoms. Have you guys had any luck with this?


  1. Never tried the honey remedy, but love the photos of the Farm Stand. Kids look like they had a great time:)

  2. Aw, I love the picture with the dog! So cute!

    I've read a lot of good reviews on stinging nettle for allergies, which I might try soon. Mine have been bad this year.
