This week at the farm...

Our friends from NC visit Saint Olaf! 

Our friends Cindy and Zach traveled across the country, from North Carolina to Wyoming. They took a couple of weeks to make the trip so that they could stop to tour national landmarks and visit friends on their journey. We were so excited when they asked to add Saint Olaf to their itinerary! 

Visit us in  Saint Olaf and we'll take YOUR photo, too!

A day in Saint Olaf:

We showed them around town(s), shopped, ate, drank, and relaxed. 
We crammed quite a bit into a quick trip:

Pedretti's Bakery
Burger Barn
Motor Mill
Turkey River Mall
Kate Chandler Ceramics
The Osborne Welcome Center
Forest Hill Farm
A walk in the prairie grass
and (hopefully) talked them into moving to IA! 

Our visit to Forest Hill Farm was definitely a highlight to the experience...

We met lots of animals, Cindy bottle-fed Sniffy Junior, we climbed under hot-electric fence, I touched a few cows, and took some fun photos...

After an amazing tour, our wonderful neighbors gave us fresh ingredients for a magnificent meal.We enjoyed the best pork chops we've ever had... big props to my awesome grill-master husband! Cindy and I chopped up fresh spinach, beet greens, celery, walnuts, and dill straight from the garden. We topped our salad with homemade ranch dressing and washed it all down with a cold beverage. Amazing!

It was delicious! 

After dinner, the guys took off for a walk through 
the prairie behind the farmhouse. 

Cindy and I followed with red wine.. :) 

We had such a great time visiting with Cindy and Zach and showing them around our new home. We also did our best to talk them into a move of their own! In the meantime, we hope they'll come see us again!
