a-MAZE-ing Fun Begins Saturday.

Seems like summer shouldn't end so soon.  However, "fall" is a beautiful time of year in Vermont.  It won't be long until the trees will let us see a whole new canvas of beauty.  With the cooler weather we welcome our farm visitors once again to our farm.  The smiles, old and new memories and stories we hear sure energizes our souls to know just how fortunate we are to "live life on a farm". Your reminders and comments help us appreciate the love of what we do even more than usual.  

Our Corn Maze this year features The Wizzard of Oz. You will even begin by walking along the yellow brick road for a bit.  The paths you navigate will embrace you with memories and splendor long after you are here.  As our cornfield experience surrounds you, out of what seems like nowhere, you will discover Emeralds City and climb up its staircase to look out over the corn tops into our "Beautiful Valley." There are new and exciting  game signage and questions to tap your memory a bit to help you decide (just as Dorothy, the Lion, the Tin Man and Scarecrow themselves had to) which way do I turn to find what they needed! Our farm animals will enjoy your visits as much as our visitors enjoy seeing them. Farmer Bob is looking forward to take you out to his field so you can help him with feeding his cattle. Don't forget your cameras to bring home wonderful memories long after you leave. Can't wait to see you!

Summer is Here!

Rolling along through the second day of summer here at the Gaines Farm... Although it has been a challenge to dodge the rain, we are moving along into what seems to be another great year. Our corn is up and growing nicely, although we started cutting and bailing hay on the 18th of May, the rain has slowed down our progress to finish the first cutting.

Progress, progress, at the call of mother nature. We have been blessed with another group of Angus babies. What a thrill to watch them run and play together in their natural environment. What fun they seem to have playing as Momma, near by, munches away with one eye on her meal and the other on her offspring. They certainly do grow quickly on her warm milk full of exactly what is best for their development. From time to time they venture into the free stall barn curious to see what their 'human friends' are up to, with the maintenance or repairs on our tractors and equipment. Life is beautiful this time of year. We are thankful for our good health, good friends, and a great environment to continue doing what we do best and love most.
