Family Fun at Bakersville Pioneer Village

If you admire the beauty of rolling farm fields, think country life is cool and appreciate history, then you'll feel right at home at Bakersville in Mansfield, Missouri.  







You can stock up on rare seeds for the family garden, pick a fruit tree for your yard, and let the kids discover an old fashioned replica of a pioneer village.   My daughters were thrilled to admire the poultry on display and check out the rustic jailhouse.  
My preschooler is still talking about the lemonade we had in the "donations only" vegetarian restaurant at lunchtime.  


Don't you just love this storybook hillbilly house that one of the on-site caretakers lives in?


We purchased seeds for growing tomatoes and salad greens, and got a cute packet of sunflowers to try at home, too. If we hadn't been traveling so far, I would have bought some of these onion sets.


I could only dream of having a stock of canned goods that looks this gorgeous!
