Apples & Alpacas

Checking out the ducks and geese.
Ducks, geese, beehives, apples and alpacas! Yes, we did it all during our August 28 field trip to Apples & Alpacas in Mexico, Missouri. We saw several breeds of ducks and geese and learned some of the stories about how they came to reside at the farm. Next, we learned a little about bee keeping. Then it was on to apple picking! The kids were each allowed to pick apples to bring home. We then got to meet the alpacas and see some of the products made from alpaca fiber. The farm was lovely. A big thank you to Mrs. Binder for showing us around!
