On Saturday our family went to the Hunter Cattle Company's Farm Heritage Day near Brooklet, and we had a grand time. Following a relaxing 40-minute drive through beautiful Georgia farm land, we arrived at the farm. The kids enjoyed riding horses and ponies, watching a goat milking demonstration, riding the mini train ride, chasing chickens, touring the farm by wagon, and simply playing.

We enjoyed the farm atmosphere and the resident cows, turkeys, donkeys, and various other farm critters. Several bands provided live music. There was wonderful food prepared by local chefs from Green Truck Pub, Thrive, and other organic-friendly names. It would have been nicer only if the day had been a bit cooler, but at least the temperature was below 90, so I can't complain too much for south Georgia.

The festival is held every year, so if you didn't make it this year, you may want to watch for it next time. The farm is a really neat place, and it provides a great chance for kids to connect with farm life, as well as learn more about where our food originates. Hunter Cattle Company also offers family overnight stays as well as birthday parties.
