Touring the Slavic Heritage Farm

Seven women from Anamoose joined others to spend a few hours on Sunday, July 26th at the Petrovic farm.  We had a great time touring the farm and seeing the animals.  We started out eating freshly baked Russian Blyny with jams or chocolate and lemonade-always a good way to start a tour!

Merek chased the mother cow and her twins, goats, sheep, chickens, and ducks out of the barn, plus we saw a bunny rabbit in a cage.
