We went to Thibert Farm near Comber with one of our homeschool groups on June 29th. The kids had a good time. They showed how they bake bread from growing the wheat to making flour to mixing and baking the bread. They showed the pigs, cows, chickens and the rabbits. They don't use any genetically modified plants in their gardens and fields and their livestock are not fed genetically modified feed. They showed us their pond (a half a mile walk each way) and the kids played on the play equipment. Zoe cried after stepping in Chicken poop and the cow took a liking to her once the other kids backed away. Austyn enjoyed the company of his friends that day and the openness of the yard was great for racing and running. The family was very hospitable and we'd recommend others to visit that farm. Their website is www.thethibertfarm.com.
"The one thing genetically modified food is not is natural. Farmers are in some cases purchasing genetically modified seeds unbeknownst to them. At the very least, people need to know what they are purchasing." Sarah Johnston.
