That Farm In Door County

During the second morning on our trip to Door County we visited The Farm right after mass and breakfast. This was recommended to us by the resort owner, told us her kids loved it.Since it was on the way to the state parks we planned to go to there was no reason for us not to drop by, especially we had two children whom we know would be thrilled to be with animals they don’t normally come in contact with.

We were right, Evan and Charlene had fun feeding the baby goats with milk from the bottle, the older goats eating corn kernels from the palm of their hands, looking at fat rabbits, pea fowls (they looked like peacocks without tails), petting a donkey, gazing at a majestic horse, cute mini-horses, playing in the mini-corn maze, admiring huge pumpkins and flowers in full bloom. The 40 acre farm is pretty scenic with its barns, orchards etc. I could retire in The Farm while painting on the side.

When in Door County The Farm is a not must miss visit (if you have kids) aside from the towns of Fish Creek, Egg Harbor and Ephraim. The Cove County Park and especially the Peninsula State Park (where there is a beach, forest, playground and store/cafe). For restaurants Wild Tomato (pizza grill) was a delightful surprise, aside from their pizza their bread was so good and instead of giving kids crayons they have small doughs for them to play with while waiting for the food. You can watch the chefs flip pizzas from your table too. Another restaurant we were happy with was Shipwrecked in the heart of Egg Harbor. Tom liked their salad (lots of meat), I loved their sea chowder soup and Evan chowed down their macaroni & cheese.

Another unforgettable sight was the hundreds of Canadian geese in the beaches of Algoma and Sturgeon Bay. Next time we go back I would like to take photos of them. For our next visit I would also love to stay longer at Fish Creek too.

More photos to come. The last of the Door County series.
