The next stop is to feed the goats out in the fields while Mr. Dave prepares the cheeses and crackers for the tasting. He gathers the grain and has the kids help fill the various colorful pails to then walk out to the field and give the goats their grain. He even lets one of the kids hold a goat! The kids are delighted as the goats eat from their pails and hands, greedily consuming what's put before them with no regard for it's giver. The kids don't seem to mind as they talk with delight about each newly discovered feature of the goats and their behaviors. They are allowed to remain in the fields for quite some time playing with the goats, grabbing sticks - imaginations soaring together as they run around gleefully.
If you are ever in the Piedmont or live nearby - then this is one field trip you will want to schedule for your kids!
