Our Visit to the Ovis Hill Farm Festival 2012

Look at those faces! I know they are mine but aren't they precious?

Every year we go to a sheep farm that is separated from us by a strip of swamp land.  Join us won't you.

We love the farm.  Charlie and Alice Caldwell own it and it is truly beautiful. They share the farm with the schools in our area, and it is a great learning experience for all. Children get to see where the wool comes from, see how butter is made, see how the bees make honey and see fresh produce, and of course farm fresh eggs.

Every year they have a Farm Festival and we do enjoy going. Please check out their Facebook link above and if in our area pay them a visit. They have a store that sells organic produce, fresh milk from a local dairy, meats, all sorts of goods. The beauty of the farm is worth the trip.

  3. Dolly, your grandson has the most expressive face. He looks so cute and happy! We used to go to Ovis to buy our cheese, but we haven't been in a while. Sorry that I missed the festival.

    1. Oh he sure does. You know Jane I don't go over there often enough, but I like their products. I am sorry you missed it too. Phillip sure likes to go and now we have another boy that will probably like it too. Good to see you Jane.
