Who doesn’t love a day on the farm? I am a total sucker for being outdoors and letting my boys run wild with no excuses. A friend of the family told us about visiting a community that is completely organic, sustainable and country chic called Serenbe, GA. She spoke so highly about it that we woke up one Saturday morning and decided to take a day trip to Serenbe. We love a good impromptu trip and were thrilled with what we came across.
We started out our day with visiting the farmers market. Vendors, farmers, artist and musicians came from the surrounding areas to showcase their work, food and talent. I was like a kid on Christmas morning and could not wait to walk the wood lined market for treasures. The boys were not as excited as I was to shop but they enjoyed the freedom to explore as they pleased.
The first thing that I did was check out the produce. I was totally in love the selection but not that in love the prices. I mean, they wanted $8.00 for a carton of eggs. That’s way to rich for my blood. I will stick to purchasing my cage free farm eggs from the grocery store.
While I continued to shop around, I noticed that Andrew coped a squat and was listening to the band. They were playing a wonderful variety of music that was highly entertaining and relaxing.
In the end I purchased a few head bands to rock in my growing locs. Of course I can’t rock a band without Axel wanting one too so we picked out a masculine one for him and for my nephew, Nate.
After exploring the market we drove around the town. The entire community consist of a general store, bakery, homes, shops, horse stables, a petting zoo, hotel, several gardens with play areas for the kids and green houses. Its AMAZING!! We stopped and let the kids play on a trampoline while beating the heat with a few cold drinks and munching on healthy organic fruit. Check out Nate flying high in his new headband.
After our break we proceeded to check out the petting zoo and let the kids roam around the property. They enjoyed stretching their legs and looking at the animals. We saw pigs, sheep, chickens, donkeys, goats and llama’s.
I was trying to pet the pigs and the mama was very protective. She bit me!! Don’t worry. I was fine, just a little startled. The boys had a great laugh.
We had no idea that a cool community like this existed. We more then enjoyed our day on the farm and the best part is that it was all free. Be sure the check out free family activities in your area.
