Crowe’s Nest Farm – A Must-Do With Your Kids

Did you know that vultures are the only birds that can smell?

Have you ever milked or watched someone milk a cow?

Have you ever wondered why male birds are prettier than female birds?

Would you believe us if we told you that pigs are some of the smartest and cleanest animals around?

Have you ever witnessed the birth of a brand new calf?

We experienced and learned about all of the above and more from Farmer Dave and Farmer Chris during our visit of Crowe’s Nest Farm.
