Down on the Farm

IMG_0063

Chesapeake has some rural areas that we enjoy driving around in once in awhile. Everything is so flat, you get a chance to look at the corn and soybean fields and actually see off into the distance.  Down Mt. Pleasant Road is one of our favorite rural stops: Bergey’s Breadbasket.

On weekends you can wander around their property and check out various farm animals and machinery…always a big hit with the little ones.

There's plenty of space to roam at Bergey's.

Our kids grew up on Bergey’s milk, which was delivered on Fridays for many years.  Now you can get some delicious sandwiches and really delicious pies 6 days a week.  Here’s a video of our recent visit with daughter Laura, husband Shawn, and grandkids Tristan and Virginia.  The music is “Happy Farms” by Promogold.  Enjoy!
