Last weekend my husband and I took a drive out to Homestead Farm in Poolesville, MD. We had visited the farm last fall, and this year we looked forward to returning to take a hayride to the pumpkin patch and stock up on apples, cider, and other autumn goodies.
After an entertaining drive down River Road through Potomac (I had a hard time staying on the road while gawking at the houses), we arrived at the farm on a sunny Saturday morning. We were happy to see that we had beat the crowds, and headed straight over to snack area to get some hot cider. Homestead offers a variety of snacks, the best of which are apple-based).
With cider in hand, we headed down to visit the animals – they have hens, sheep, goats, pigs and piglets, ducks and a calf all looking to be petted and fed (they sell animal feed for 50 cents). Who could resist this little man?
