Even though I’ve lived in the Philly area for six years, I for some reason had never been to the
Colonial Plantation at Ridley Creek State Park. In an effort to experience all the history the greater Philadelphia area has to offer, I finally went.
loved these pigs!
the main house has three different sections built at different times. The first part was built around 1690, the middle around 1740, and the last around 1810 (from what I remember…)
I laid on this bed…it was surprisingly comfortable!
the sassy geese squad – they were characters!
got to pet this soft, sweet bunny. The tour guide said that a lot of people just dump their animals in the parking lot of the park–assuming that the farm will take them in…luckily, the volunteers are kindhearted and do often take them in
6 week old calf…so sweet. And also made me sad all over again thinking about how people eat these cuties on a regular basis. But, again, I know not everyone shares my vegan beliefs.
This horse used to be a racing horse, as you can see from the brand on his neck. He got t old and the previous owners had no use for him anymore (sadly, this is how it usually goes with horses of a certain age), so the plantation basically rescued him.
oh how I’d love to live on a spread like this…
