The Little Red Barn

I'm getting geared up to go and volunteer at the Little Red Barn on Friday and Saturday.
This is an exhibit that is all hands on and its free. Kids get to find out what life is like on the farm, as they plant a garden, feed cows and chickens, haul hay, pick an apple, then trade their produce in at the farmers market, and head to the grocery story to trade their money in for their food.
Because of liabilty issues all the hands on (like milking the cows) is all pretend, but they get the main idea. And ole' Festues is a lot easier to milk compared to ole' One Eyed Sally at home, no worries about getting kicked or swatted in the eye. There is real animals to look at though, chickens, a lamb, and some bull calves. It is a lot of fun and the kids love it. Check out pictures from last year here. This is put on by the Uintah County Farm Bureau and the Uintah High FFA.
It is a lot of fun plus I get to put in my volunteer hours :). Come see me I'll be there Friday from 11-1 and Saturday 12-2.
Stop by the indoor arena onThursday, July 29th 5:00 - 7:00 p.m. Friday, July 30th 11:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m. or Saturday, July 31st 10:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.
