Some family fun facts: The smallest cow in the roping herd was made with a saw horse that Grandpa Tim made in high school. The milk bucket used in the hand milking station, was the same one that Grandpa Tim’s family used to milk their family cow. There really is a reason we keep all that stuff!
Being dairy farmers by trade, we have opened up part of our farm, hoping to share with the children (and children at heart) a little bit of farm life. We share this facility with our ‘dry cows’ and heifers. They let us play around a little in their barns, and we leave them all the corn, hay and pumpkins to eat when we are done. Grandpa Tim brings out his ole’ John Deere’s and lets you hop aboard for the ‘imaginary’ ride.
We are celebrating our ninth anniversary this year and are partnering with Darigold, bringing you “farmalicious” – where farm meets delicious. It’s a perfect match for us, as we ship our milk to Darigold and have for 44 years.
The Thomasson Family is holding at 14 grandkids (though grandma and grandpa are always hoping for more!). We thoroughly enjoy the time we spend together working on the pumpkin patch as a family. Each child helps in their own way, whether it’s helping pulling weeds, painting signs or keeping the small ones entertained (if driving Grandpa’s “Gator” can be considered a job, they’re all for it!). Come on out and spend some time with us, we are excited to share our farm with you. Make it a tradition, we hope each child will feel that they spent time on a farm growing up – the Thomasson Family Farm!
