I always love visiting The Experimental Farm. My daughter is still a bit fearful approaching livestock; she likes the idea but in reality they turn out to be giant snorting beasts instead of smiling plastic figurines. She is cautiously curious, but inevitably some hooved animal will bleat in her face and it’s all over. So after some tears, we enjoyed the other parts of the Agriculture Museum instead. In my 30+ years of visiting the farm, I somehow missed the wall of mason jar preserves and vintage kitchen appliances! I guess I was always more captivated by live animals. I’m hoping my daughter will learn to enjoy them soon, too. Maybe next year!
