We picked raspberries at a place called Riley’s Farm. I can’t express how blessed I feel to live within driving distance of such a place. In addition to having excellent U-Pick fruits, veggies, and flowers, they also offer a slice of life as it was during our nations young history. Tours are offered that take the visitor back to a time where much of the conveniences of our modern age were all crafted by hand and out of necessity. They offer revolutionary and civil war reenactments, period dinner and dancing, and of course the best apple pie you’ve ever had.
The boys tried their hand at archery with a skilled and delightful tour guide named Logan who never once faltered in his period Irish accent. Wonderful! The girls, meanwhile, took advantage of a picnic table situated under a lovely shade tree and next to a little running brook where the smallest girl spent most of her time! Ah, to be little and carefree.
