Woodland Farm Visit
Sitting along the Ohio River in Goshen is the wonderful Woodland Farm. We visited this beautiful working farm last Fall and fell in love.
Our tour started at the farm store where we were picked up by farm manager, Kristopher Kelly. We hopped in the back of his pickup truck and set out on our tour. The first stop on the 1,000 acre farm was to visit the bison. We stopped in the middle of a field where several bison surrounded us. Kristopher spoke to us for a while about the animals and answered our questions. It was neat to learn about the bison and see them up close. There were several babies in the field that the kids enjoyed seeing.
On the banks of the Ohio River, we stopped and walked to visit the pigs and chickens. We caught some of the piglets rushing back to their moms, ducking under the fencing and squealing along the way. Kristopher found some remnants of corn in an adjacent field and let the kids feed it to some of the pigs. In this area we also saw chickens and learned about the different breeds of pigs and chickens on the farm.
We loaded back in the truck bed and made our way back to the farm store for the end of our tour. We marveled at the vastness and beauty of the farm. We left with a new appreciation of how much work goes into the daily chores and upkeep of Woodland Farm.
