On the Farm

Today Team Schwabel headed out to the Gale Woods Farm in Minnetrista, MN. I've always been curious about this place and it turned out to be wonderful.

Gale Woods Farm is a former working farm that was given to the state in 2000. Since then, the Three Rivers Parks District updated the farm as a visitors site. There's a great big barn with lots of animals and biking, hiking, and canoe access.

Unfortunately, the barn doesn't open until May 1st, but we beat the crowds and had the baby animals all to ourselves. Cole spent the afternoon petting baby lambs that were a month old and looking at Alice, a week old calf. He also got pecked on the finger by an angry rooster which he did NOT like.

We spent some additional time hiking a 2.5 mile loop that overlooks pastures and animal enclosures. Cole sang to us the whole way - and it was fantastic.
