We had a wonderful trip to Treleven Farm, the home of Don and Cheryl Mitchell who raise sheep, chickens, and are stewards of a beautiful piece of land. They are our farmer pen pals.
During our visit we hiked to a rocky outcropping where we looked out over the property and enjoyed beautiful views of the farm and of the sheep grazing in the meadow. While we were there, many of us saw a snake resting quietly in the crack of a rock which we hope to identify.
We ate our lunch by the pond and then investigated what lives IN the pond. Children discovered cray fish, minnows, tadpoles, turtles, and salamanders to name just a few! We ended our visit with a short work project to clear some small sticks from the labyrinth, and then reluctantly had to end our day to get back to school.
