Here in the suburbs of Chicago, the farm to table movement is gaining in popularity. This also means that more people are interested in learning about farm life and we have a few working farms in the area that are open to the public. Primrose Farm is just a 10-minute drive from our house and we had the pleasure of taking the grands there last weekend.
An iconic farmhouse awaits your arrival as the tire swing hangs in patience waiting for some action.
It didn’t take too much coaxing for the kids to enjoy a swing on the tire.
Seeing how much fun they were having makes me want to hang a tire swing in our yard.
The Belgian horses trotted right over to us and let the kids tirelessly pet them.
This beats playing video games any day!
Such a beautiful creature!
We heard the roosters crowing and had to go take a look.
The hen house has a charming shabby chic vibe goin’ on.
I don’t know which I enjoyed more.
See the animals or watching the kids’ reactions to the animals.
The cows were out in the field when we arrived, but lucky for us the farmer corralled them.
We headed inside the barn at Primrose Farm to get a closer look.
I love that the farm lets you get so close to the animals.
It was a great experience for these two suburbanites.
This precious face pretty much sums up why I’m a vegetarian. So cute!
There’s so much to do down on the farm! I just love it out here with the fresh air and gentle breezes.

A few blog posts ago I shared my love of French Macarons and since these little buggers can be expensive, I decided to try making my own. While researching recipes I read that not only are they expensive, but they can be tricky to make. Since my overall goal for 2013 is to step out…
