Field Trip to Deer Hollow Farm

Recently, our school got to go on a field trip to Deer Hollow Farm, which is in the Rancho San Antonio Open Space Preserve in the hills above Los Altos. It was a great day out for the students, staff, and parent chaperone!

First, we hiked from the parking lot to the farm, a roughly 1-mile long hike on paths through some lovely countryside.

We also saw some interesting wildlife along our hike. We walked past lots of turkeys and stopped to watch a herd of deer grazing in a field. (Unfortunately, I didn't get any pictures of the deer. Oops!)

Once we reached the farm, we saw more animals, though all these were domesticated. There were chickens, cows, goats, and hairy pigs. We ate lunch there in an old barn that had been converted to a covered picnic area.

After lunch we made our way back to the cars to head home. Thankfully, despite cloudy skies, the Lord blessed us with good temperatures and no rain during our trip. It was a fun field trip and a good day!
