Kevin, the girls and I drove to the Wild Berry Farm in Sadler, this afternoon. When we arrived, we paid our entry fee and entered the farm. Katelynn and Sara went down the slide, before we went on the hayride. Kevin grabbed some fish food, and on the ride we went down to the pond. At the pond, we stopped for feeding the catfish. These were some big fish. But they also get fed very well by farm visitors throughout the day. The farmer said: “By the end of the day, the catfish might have a belly ache! ;)” We all hopped back on the wagon and rode back to the farm house.
After the hayride, we walked through the wild berry fields to get to the Pumpkin Patch and the Sunflower Maze. There were some beautiful pumpkins sitting in the field. In the Sunflower Maze, the Monarchs, Gulf Fritillaries, Admirals, all sorts of bees and bugs fluttered and flew from one sunflower to the other. It was fun to watch them. Katelynn and Sara were fascinated by the different kind and sizes of bees.
Walking back through the berry fields, Katelynn was leading us through the Corn Maze. A cool fact about the Corn Maze on the Wild Berry Farm: When you put a drone up in the air, you can see that the maze is grown in the shape of the Texas Lone Star Flag. Katelynn did very good walking us through the maze. And it was fun!
Katelynn and Sara enjoyed looking at the farm animals. There were some chicken, goats and sheep on the farm. Some chicken were scratching a hole in the ground. I guess, they tried to find some bugs or tried to get to cooler soil on this warm day. The other chicken were happily clucking and walking around. The goats nibbled some grass, and the sheep were busy eating in their barn.
Seeing the whole farm, the girls wanted to play in the “Rat Rollers”, then went down the slide several more times, and played some “Football”. Before we left the farm, I picked up a jar of Pumpkin Butter. I’ve never had any. But I want to try it. It was a beautiful, sunny day. And we enjoyed our visit at the Wild Berry Farm. My goal is to drive up there and pick some fresh berries next Spring, early Summer.
