Now that the temperatures are cooling down we are back to some Field trip fun! The Girgenti Farm is such a lovely place, situated in a peaceful countryside in the limits of Siggiewi. The kids were eager to go in as soon as we arrived. The farm owner took us around for a tour of the farm, stopping by animals where the kids had the opportunity to feed them from their hands. It was an exciting up-close experience for them. There were pot bellied pigs, chickens, roosters, ducks and rabbits. There were two sheep, one black and one white, who were a new addition to the farm. There was also a friendly donkey who loved cuddles and the kids gathered around to take a turn. Then they fed the horse and the farmer called us to plant some cauliflower sprouts into pots. Each child did his/her own, filling the pot with soil and poking a hole to place the sprout, then adding more soil on top. They each watered the plant and were overjoyed when the farmer told them that they could take it home with them! Finally, we all went to the chicken coop to see the eggs. This was a large fenced area, well shaded with trees and there were different breeds of chickens and roosters, along with ducks, geese and some rabbits. The kids stood in a line and the farmer handed them a cup of corn each, and we had a show of flying corn kernels and chickens stepping on our feet and racing around to catch the kernels. They had so much fun they wanted to throw another round of corn! They were curious to see where the hens laid their eggs and they all gathered round to watch and petting some hens. Definitely a fantastic hands-on experience!
