We live in the city and my eight-year old daughter really didn't know a thing about farms and farm animals, so we wanted to introduce her to a lifestyle with which we were [a bit] more familiar. It is one thing to take your child to see animals somewhere, but quite another to introduce the child to the lifestyle of the farm, the necessity to do "chores," to feed the animals, to have that kind of responsibility. This was a great experience for these reasons. The Hull Family was very kind. We did not like the first accommodations and they graciously changed them and then we were so very pleased! My daughter was sobbing when we left, and we all enjoyed our stay very much. We hope to return next summer.
