The farm is set up like an old time pioneer village with old time hotel, restaurant, general store, apothecary, livery stable, mill and much more....the mach town is called Bakersville Pioneer Village. Really NEAT!!! For the annual festival they had over 150 vendors there selling their homemade organic, goods, plants, foods, crafts, small farm animals and other wears. There was live music too....fiddlers, cello players, yodelers, etc. All sorts of fun things to see and do. It was SUPER, SUPER crowded but we had such a good time.
I wanted to eat at the restaurant which serves vegan food from fresh ingredients right off the farm there but the line was a mile long. The neat thing about the restaurant is that they don't have a set price for the food. You pay by donation. I did have a delicious bowl of organic cowboy beans and cornbread from their outdoor kitchen where the line wasn't so long. It was by donation also...and I tried a sample of fresh, creamy goat cheese from one of the vendors. Very tasty!!!
Shamefully I didn't take a ton of pictures because I just wanted to enjoy my day there without being tied down with the camera. However, I did take a few to show you....
Pops (my father-in-law) and the kids took a horse and buggy ride...
Awww...isn't he pretty?!!
These guys were good too.
We also met this group of entertainers...
Of course I was respectful to ask if I could take their picture because I know that native american Indians oftentimes do not permit their picture to be taken.
Of course we were on a real farm so there were all kinds of animals to be seen...sheep, goats, chickens...
I can tell you I absolutely love this place and we WILL be visiting again....probably in the fall.
If you would like to take a trip to Bakersville Pioneer Village aka Baker Creek Seed Co. or learn more about them, go to their website HERE.
I promise if you are in Missouri and interested in organic farming or just like outdoor adventures and activities it's worth the drive. If you are not in the area they do sell their seeds online. Plus they will send you a free catalog so you can order by mail.
I'll be back tomorrow to show you what I bought on our trip.
