Daisy Troop 81224 decided to celebrate summer and their Daisy program by spending some time at Lazy Daze Farm, located at 14074 Hoovers Mill Road in Rocky Ridge. The farm is owned by the Doody family, and they have turned a portion of the farm into an area to hold small get-togethers/parties. Their slogan is “Helping families create memories and inspiring children’s curiosity in agriculture!” And that is exactly what they did for Girl Scout Daisy Troop 81224.
Scouts, along with their parent/guardian, spent time on the farm learning about farm animals, such as chickens, ducks, rabbits, goats, sheep, pigs, cows, horses, and ponies, to name a few. The girls spent time getting comfortable around the animals, petting, feeding, and even riding one of the ponies. Most of the animals are rescues, to which the Doody family have lovingly given a home. The girls enjoyed age-appropriate activities, including loop lassoing, sand box, corn hole, and hay bale climbing. They also made a horseshoe wind chime, ate some pizza, and ended the fun with a hay ride. An experience the girls will talk about for a long time.
Lisa Doody had a vision to expose people of all ages to her family’s love of farming and agriculture with a hands-on experience in a comfortable atmosphere. And she did just that for Daisy Troop 81224!
