Thanks for stopping by A Family Place. I enjoy working with families, and sharing the power of music with them. Kindermusik provides this outlet for me. This blog will allow me to share thoughts and ideas that can help families in their journey.

Berry Fun

If you ask people in the Rome community where they like to go for some R & R, the answer is often Berry College. People enjoy driving around and looking at the deer, the cows, the ducks, and the beautiful campus. On a sunny weekend Berry is covered with bikers, hikers, lookers and lovers. Berry has acres & acres to explore.

The week of April 12 - 16 is AG week at Berry. This is a great time to come out and see one of the reasons Berry is unique: agriculture. As you drive on campus you can check out the farm equipment. Children love to look at the tractors! The AG department will also provide hands-on experience during the week. Here are a few of the activities:

Monday - come dressed as a cowgirl, cowboy or farmhand for free burgers. Not dressed up, burgers are $1. This is Berry beef! This event is held in the Clara Bowl from 6 - 8 p.m. The Clara Bowl is across from the Ford can see the field from the Kindermusik room.

Wednesday - petting zoo. This is a favorite of all ages! At Krannert Center between 11 - 1, you can pet goats, horses, calves, and other farm animals. Krannert is just south of the circle when you enter campus.

Friday - roping games. Come try your hand at roping, as in steers! This is also on the lawn at Krannert between 11 - 1.

Did you know that Berry has an award winning dairy herd? You are invited to see the state of the art milking parlor & watch the process. Milking begins daily at 3:30 p.m. The dairy is past Ford on Rollins Road. Student workers will be feeding the new baby calves at the same time.

See you at Kindermusik, and maybe at the barn!
