A Visit to the Farm {Part II}


Last week after our stop at Flying Cloud Farm we drove down the road to Hickory Nut Gap Farm, one of very favorite places to go in the summer and fall.  My husband and I harbor dreams of having our own little homestead/farm one day and are so drawn to farm life.  Any time we get to visit one we are inspired and reinvigorated!  We love Hickory Nut Gap especially in the Fall, when they have rides and tons of animals around, fresh apples and pumpkins.  But summers are fun for berry picking, swimming, and 50 cent apple cider pops.  Last week was my first time taking the kids berry picking there and we had so much fun.  Phoebe would make a great farm-hand!  She got right to work picking, insisted on carrying the bucket the whole time {which she did so carefully} and would have worked all morning had I let her.  Noah on the other hand seemed to prefer the stroller. 🙂


And then there was this one, for some reason not feeling the berry-picking adventure:



Moving on to pick black raspberries…

Then after a picnic lunch in the sweaty humid heat, the kids basked in the creek.  Such a fun way to wind down!


If you’re local, you should go for a visit!  Check out their website for updates on what’s in season.  Thanks Hickory Nut Gap for a super fun environment for kids to explore and learn about animals and plants, as well as providing lovely organic local food!

  1. great pictures, martha! HNG is such a magical place! i went there as a kid to pick apples…and got married there just last month. happy summer!

  2. […] My pictures from the day are sort of haphazard, as was my brain that day, but we were busy enjoying the fun.  Phoebe got to see her friend from dance, also named Phoebe, and they rode the kiddie cart ride together (the highlight of the day for Phoebe, outside of being with her Baba + Nain).  I’ve written before about the farm here.
