I am a city girl. I was born and raised in the city. I love everything about the city: the buzz, the people, the facilities. I also love to visit small towns and farms. When I was young, I used to spend my summer holidays at my grandparents farm. They mainly had fruit trees, but they also had a few chickens. Since I am an early riser, I woke up around 5 am to pick up the fresh eggs from the hens. What a lovely feeling: a warm egg in your hand and picking it gently from under the chicken.
Twenty years later, I still feel that in my hand now when I think about this. And those eggs: they were the best ever. I don’t know why they tasted better but those eggs were really delicious. I cannot wait to feel that again with my upcoming Burnbrae farm tour. I will be visiting their farm along with some amazing Canadian bloggers.
Burnbrae Farms tour: Why I am looking forward to this trip
First, I love that Burnbrae Farms is a family business. Did you know that they have been farming since 1893? I love the idea of supporting a family-run farm with such a rich history. It will be fascinating to learn about Burnbrae Farms and where our food comes from. I like feeling that connection and sharing it with my family and you. It also reminds me of my grandparent’s farm but on a larger scale. My grandpa only had a few chickens and lots of fruit trees. He did not have horses and I am so looking forward to seeing a horse up close! Maybe we can ride one!
I am looking forward to it as it will be a throw-back to my childhood. I am looking forward to touching a chicken again. I am looking forward to having that warmth in my hand when I touch a fresh egg. Words cannot describe how lovely and welcoming it is to feel. As a foodie and a mom looking for new ways to cook, I will be learning new ways to cook with eggs as well as their nutritional aspect. You shared with us a while ago 20 ways to cook with eggs and I am looking forward to learning other ways to cook them. I will be sharing those new findings with you!
Since Burnbrae Farms is located in Eastern Ontario, I am excited to visit that part of the country. I have never been there before. Who knows, maybe I could organize a family trip to this region after! All in all, it’s going to be an exciting trip. I can’t wait to share it with you!
