Strawberry picking at Kauffman's Farm

For the past several weeks I have wanted to go pick strawberries. In the beginning, it was weather, then it was being out of town and then all the patches were out. Needless to say, I was bummed. About a week ago, someone sent me an email about a place in Montezuma, Ga called Kauffman's Farm. It is located about 30 minutes from here and is run by an Amish family. So I called and set up a homeschool field trip.

We picked pesticide free strawberries.

Then, we walked in an orderly fashion ran to pet and feed the animals.

The goats were trying so hard to get to the food in Ella's hand. She would get close enough to tease them and then back up because she was scared they would bite her.

Finally, she got the courage.

Next, came the hay ride.

and finally the homemade strawberry ice cream.

From Kauffman's we went around the corner to a Mennonite restaurant. 
We had a day filled with fun, good food and friends.

Tomorrow, we will be heading to Atlanta for another  field trip to the Center for Puppetry Arts.


  1. Thanks for organizing the field trip. We had lots of fun, and I spent part of my afternoon cleaning an over-abundance of strawberries. LOL!

    We are looking forward to hanging out with you all tomorrow in ATL as well! We'll see you bright and early, so get some coffee!

  2. Your trip looked wonderful!! Now what are you going to make with your strawberries?!?!
