Julianna loves chickens and being on the farm

Last weekend, we visited our friend's farm in upstate NY. They used to live down here by us in NJ and retired to upstate NY where they bought this great farmhouse on a ginormous piece of property (90 acres I think??) - It's up in the middle of nowhere and it's just gorgeous!! It was our first visit there and we had a nice time. Julianna loved their chickens - she loved feeding them and collecting the eggs on Sunday morning. She didn't quite get the egg part so much because she tried to feed an egg to one of the chickens....

Karen & Dave have a large garden with tomatoes & other veggies as far as the eye can see. They have been jarring & freezing for weeks now. They have enough jarred tomato sauce, pickles, herbs, etc... to last through next year! Their chickens give them about 8-10 eggs daily... so we were sent home with a jar of sauce, 3 dozen eggs and some other various items. We had fresh eggs (french toast) for breakfast and fresh tomato sauce for dinner- Yum! The farm fresh eggs are incredible to say the least. What a difference from store-bought. Makes me want to have my own chicken HAHA!

Julianna loved feeding the chickens.

Love this one. I would love to wake up to this in the morning. 

We got up early to go feed the chickens & collect the eggs 

My silly dog (black & white on the right) almost got herself a chicken dinner! 

Hello chicken!
