Old Baker Farm

Today we went on a field trip to Old Baker Farm in Harpersville. It was fun, hot, dirty, and exhausting! The farm has been in the Baker family for over 200 years, and they grow cotton, pumpkins, and Christmas trees, plus they have lots of animals. I have a gazillion great pics, so I'll have to do a slide show, but for now I'll just post this one really great pic. This is Mr. Baker, one of 14 siblings, the grandfather of the farm now, who will be 100 in January. He's a little hard of hearing, and he's using a walker right now because he hurt his knee in the fields last week, but other than that he's still going strong. The kids loved him, and I think he loves the kids.
