Creative Farming/ Ruby Tuesday

Trikes to keep little kids happy

Farmers here are looking for new ways to keep their businesses going. The owners of this farm grows vegetables, raises turkeys and goats, and also sells jellies and other preserves. As an added attraction, they purchased a few RUBY RED trikes for kids to play on while their parents shop.

Seeing red? Why not join in the Ruby Tuesday fun, by visiting MaryT at http://workofthepoet.blogspot.com/

That's a lot of red tricycles.

Ralph said...

We didn't have such nice tricycles when I was little...This farm seems to be treat, the little ones can ride a trike if they are bored, but with all the animals, kids of all ages can have fun looking and perhaps petting soft wool. Grown-ups too!

Leora said...

The trikes imply lots of children. Bet they love the goats, too.

Bergson said...

i like this congregation tricycles ;-)

Rona Michelson said...

What a great idea! And of course, the only color trikes should be is red.

Michelle said...

What a sweet picture.

Betty said...

The trikes are nice. I would rather hug a goat. I like goats.

Dimple said...

LOLOLOL-I think the herd of trikes is really cute! I bet they eat a lot less than the goats! And are more fun to ride, also!

Marites said...

that's quite interesting! Of course, kids need to get busy while parents are shopping.

Carolyn Ford said...

Jacob said...

Oh now that WOULD be fun...herding tricycles!

Margaret Cloud said...

Well you know what they say, you have to spend money (on trikes) to make money and also make the customers happy, I just love farms. Thank you for coming by.

It is nice of the farmers to treat the kids. I am sure the kids like ridding those red bikes.

Carletta said...

I can't specifically say why but I really like this photo!
I think the farmer had a splendid idea.

George said...

I love it! There are certainly a number of trike riders on the farm.

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Cute little red tricycles. My sons used to have some similar to those. Great Ruby Tuesday picture.

Becky and Gary said...

Somebody must have several children. I'm wondering where all these kids are, and what they are doing. Great choice Carletta.

eden said...

cute little red tricycles and a good idea for the kids.

Ann said...

The kids will on the Monday after, I went to the farm and I rode trikes.

Re: Cave, we didn't plan to go into the cave. We wanted to see the gannet birds. So we normally don't check the tides when we go..

A crop of trikes. Interesting idea. actually nice of the people to think of the little ones while parents shop for veggies.

I got my car fixed so tomorrow I am going to Arlington and see what is fishy. Arlington is the next small town south of here. MB

Jama said...

But where are the kids? did they just leave the bikes to animals?

pinkyshelo said...

cute trikes.. im sure the kids would enjoy the farm..

luna miranda said...

that's a great way to promote a business!:p

Robin said...

I never realized they grew like that, I always pictured them as more of a tree fruit ;).

Mt Albert Green said...

The farm is where we get our veggies all summer. They also have a 10 acre corn maze. It is a CSA, Community Supported Agriculture Farm. You buy shares in the farms produce.

Instead of red tractors....you have red trikes. Cool!

My R T is posted now. "I came, HE SAWED, we conquered". come see. Here is the permalink to my Tuesday post.

Icy BC said...

Those are wonderful tricycles! I love those!

Auntie E said...

Love it! the children must be busy at the farm.

Gel said...

Very interesting contrast in objects. I wouldn't expect to see so many red tricycles on a farm. Was there a tricycle convention?/adventure :)

moorebloglife said...

That is creative farming, it is like they left them there just for you!

PERBS said...

What a clever idea! Before I read your words, I thought they had a big family with many children!

Fun shot ;-)
Hugs and blessings,

Felisol said...

Splendid idea to think of the small customers as well.
I know where I preferred to do my purchase when my daughter was a child. Where we all could relax because all felt welcomed.

Jim said...

One of those trikes needs a seat. Or it is meant for really skinny stick kids.
Happy RT!

Jim,

The owner said some of the kids are rough on the trikes. Sounds like kids are just like they've always been. But where were the parents?

Rose said...

Farmers are nothing if not resourceful...I love the composition of this shot.

Craver Vii said...

Like I always say, if at first you don't succeed, trike and trike again.
