Green Meadows Farm
Me - Hello! Green Meadows Farm was fun! Almost all of the animals at the farm, you could pick up and hold. Even the ones you couldn't pick up, you could usually go in the enclosure and pet. There were three really cute puppies. They were 9 weeks old. I got to hold two of them. I wish I had time to hold the other but there was a tour leader, and we had to go see other animals. There were also chicks and baby geese. I got to hold one of each. There were turkeys, chickens, and hens. I held one of each except for turkeys. They wouldn't let us hold a turkey because they said the turkeys were really heavy. There were bunnies. I got to hold. It was black and white. It looked like the bunny my Mom used to have. My Mom's bunny was named Oreo. There were baby goats that had literally been born that morning. I got to hold a baby goat. I handed the baby goat to a little girl who was there too and couldn't pick one up by herself. There were little tiny ponies and a big huge horse. They also had a new born baby horse. He was really cute. The piglets were so funny. They were getting milk from their Mom. This one little one kept squealing because it couldn't find room to eat. It finally found a spot, and then it left. It came back and started squealing again and climbing on its brothers' and sisters' heads. I got to feed goats and sheep. I got to milk a cow. It was disgusting, There was an Alpaca. It's fur was so dirty from the ground. When I pet it, it was a mixture of soft from its fur and rough and bumpy from the dirt. There was a mule. They told us that mules can't reproduce by themselves. You have to have a donkey and a horse to make a mule. There was an Emu. We didn't get to go in the enclosure, but we did get to stick our hands in and pet it. It was surprisingly soft. All the birds were surprisingly soft except the turkey. On the way, out they gave me a free Green Meadows Farm cup. Outside, the farm, there was a hayride. Hardly anyone was on when we went on. During the hayride, there were a lot of trees, and I felt like one was going to fall on my head. When we came back from our ride, a lot of people were waiting to go on. Green Meadows Farm was a very very very cool place to go!*

Mom- We had a great time at Green Meadows Farm. We were lucky to have picked a beautiful bright sunny day for our visit. At times, it was even a little too bright, and we were glad to have brought our sunglasses. The farm is on the grounds of the Hazlet Municipal complex. There is also a playground and some other buildings there. Before, we went into the farm, we had a picnic lunch. After lunch, we went into the farm. There were so many different animals to see. There were goats. There were horses. There were pigs. There were many different species of birds. There were Alpacas. There were donkeys. There were mules. There were cows and more. There were also a lot of adorable baby animals because there are always babies being born on the farm. There were 9 week old puppies. There were kittens. There were several different types of baby birds. There was a foal. There were baby bunnies. There were piglets. There were even baby goats that had literally been born that morning. We are all big animal lovers in our family so we loved the farm. Green Meadows Farm is an animal lover's paradise.
And that's our view. What is your favorite farm animal?
Tune in tomorrow for Funny Friday.
