breakfast on the farm
Upon arrival we boarded the horse drawn carriage and were delivered to the breakfast queue. Our breakfast was served by friendly people with ready smiles and consisted of a generous helping of ham and cheese omelets, porkies (sausage links), deep-fried cheese curds, cinnamon rolls, bagels and cream cheese, yogurt, milk and cheese and cheese and more cheese!
After breakfast we said hello to the cows in the barn and proceeded to the line that would eventually allow us to board a tractor pulled trailer for a farm tour. What a tour! I have only been on a dairy farm one other time and it was much smaller than this one. The gentleman giving the tour was fabulous and very informative. Did you know that a cow's optimal temperature is 50 degrees fahrenheit?! No kidding! So when you see those commercials that say California cows are happy.... just remember that they're probably too hot! :) I could bore you with all the details, but I'm sure it would be too much information and your eyes would probably be too tired to finish reading this post. :) Let's just say that those cows are probably managed better than my kids! (That might not even be a joke.)
After licking our spoons and custard cups clean we started to meander towards the exit. We stopped and climbed on a few tractors on our way out and looked for an Allis-Chalmers to use in a photo for Grandpa Jerry, but the only one we saw was actually working at towing the tour trailers.
(ha, ha! I love the squinty faces on everyone. Sun was bright and shiny!)
