The Farm Show

I feel like a child on Christmas Eve. Eager to fall asleep and wake up to a tree with presents. My present is the Farm Show in Harrisburg,Pa. My husband and I went with some friends last year for the first time. Since our anniversary is on Jan 7, we enjoy this as our gift to one another.

The show runs from the 9-16th this year. We missed a lot last year going with a group of people so we are excited to do it solo meaning just our family. They have everything you can possibly imagine....and more!!

This year we are getting ideas of things to grow in our area. I'm excited to see the Angora Rabbits because I would like to start learning how to raise and breed them. Plus Madeline gets so much out of it too. She can learn all about the different animals and see them up close. They have an area for small kids to play and "pick" veggies and play "market". They can play in corn, get pictures taken, ride a carousel (her favorite), plant, and more.

For homesteaders and upcoming farmers, this is an exciting place for us. We fit in and we belong. We don't have to spend any money to go, and our daughter learns so much (us too)!! The possibilities are endless!!
