Taves Applebarn Farm

  It has become a bit of a family Fall tradition to head to one of the local farms for a day of fun.   This year we took our little crew out to Abbotsford to Taves Family Farm.  We absolutely chose to go on one of the busiest days of the year….a sunny Saturday of Thanksgiving weekend.
