Was just driving down the road and saw the sign... impromptu stop on our Saturday outing. Nice farm and nice store. Wonderful story. A nice destination or wayside stop.

Love the Heifer Farm. We stopped in to buy pumpkins and go on a hay ride. Great for any age young and old.

We are regulars at Drumlin Farm, but decided to check this out when our church made a field trip there in May 2014. The tour started with a movie featuring the villages Heifer International supports, which really helped the kids relate what we saw on...More
