Farm Fresh

Weston, Missouri 
I took a friend up to Weston, Missouri last weekend because she's never been to visit before. I was going on and on about Weston Red Barn Farm and how great it was for families like hers with young children. They have a free petting zoo, hay rides, farm fresh eggs, pumpkins, apples, the whole spiel. Every visit for me has been so much fun. I'm very much not a country girl but am slowly and surely learning some country ways. (Like making small talk).

When we stopped by that day, they weren't open for the season yet. A very nice lady came out to see if we needed any help, and we told her we were just poking around as I pointed out all the cool stuff. Before we left, she asked if we liked farm fresh eggs. Answer: heck yeah! She ran into the house, grabbed us two cartons of beautiful eggs and opened up the store to ring us up. She handed us fliers, invited us to like their facebook page and follow the farm on Pinterest. We eventually left very happy and couldn't stop raving about how nice she was when we were interrupting her day. Warm and inviting hospitality? Check. And she even thought to plug their social media. Now that's good business. FYI – Weston Red Barn Farm opens for the season on Memorial Day.
