Animal Farms/ My World

Signs at the entrances to a few Ontario Farms


East Gwillimbury, although less than an hour from Toronto (North America's fourth largest city) is still rural with many farms in the outlying areas and in the towns to the east, north and west and some even to the south. Here are five of the many, many signs seen as you drive down just about any country road. Four of these are for dairy farms and there's one each for a beef and a horse farm. As you can see, they are all different.



Visit My World Tuesday  HERE to see tons of photos from around the world.

Windy Brae--oh, I love the sounds of that one...strange how we can fall in love with just a name. I am always hearing phrases and thinking that they would make a good name for something.

What a neat idea for showing us your world. The signs are all great and it gives a great view of your world.

Hey, Robyn!

I'm hoping the cow has a great agent and is is raking in tons of royalties. :)

I wonder if these farms offer a guided tour to their dairy factory (?).

Love the signs.

Ebie said...

This is a very interesting info. Although I live in the city, I like the outskirts.

We have to travel quite a ways to visit farms. Very interesting signs.

Those are wonderful signs.

Also, learned something new. I didn't know Toronto was North America's 4th largest city.

Fascinating, a wonderful collage. We have a lot of rural areas where I live too, but I've never seen anything like those signs.

These signs make for a terrific Mosaic! It has been many years that we have had a dairy farm near us. I remember going on a school field trip with my girls when they were in their early grades to a dairy farm and it closed soon after.

We get most of our dairy products from Pennsylvania.

I really like these farm signs. They show such pride in the farming achievements of the family. Farming is so important... if it were not for farmers, what would we have to eat. As the saying goes.... "If you ate today, thank a farmer".

ladyfi said...

What cheerful signs! Lovely!

These are charming! It would be lovely if our farms could signpost themselves like this. :)
