Kids Will Eat What They Pick

Kids Will Eat What They Pick 1A fellow Philly Social Media Mom, Carrie of Making Lemonade organized a tour of  The Longview Center for Agriculture (formerly Willow Creek Orchards). This Greener Partner project consists of 90 acres of certified organic farmland, including an organic fruit orchard and an on-site Farmer’s Market, the Longview Center serves as a regional hub for reconnecting with the land, our community and the food that sustains us.

The set up of this farm was simply breath taken. I have been cleaning up what goes into my family's mouth and I try to only give them food that are natural so being on this farm felt wonderful. The farmer guided us on a tour and really explained the process for growingKids Will Eat What They Pick 2 sustainable foods.

The children loved the demonstration garden as they were able to sample all that was there and surprisingly they did. My son is a picky but healthy eater and even he ate fruits and veggies off the vine.  The joy of this farm is all the things that can be learned by stopping by.  Driving home was such a treat as the kids talked about all they saw. My son the nature buff, could not stop talking about how they welcomed the bugs to the crops and also how they rarely cut the grass to allow the bacteria to stay in the ground. The princess was excited about the Sun Gold Tomatoes.
