Homeschooling trip to UPM Edupark

Last week, some homeschooling families got together for a trip to UPM Edupark. It is just 20 mins from our place. I was not expecting much, but..look at this..


What a gorgeous place! We took a farm truck to go in, and all of a sudden it was like we were transported to a different world..and it is beautiful.


I am blown away by the beauty of this place.


As breathtaking as New Zealand, right here at our doorstep.


We went to the cow milking place. I was hoping for handmilking but apparently these days cows are milked with electric pumps! similar to breastpumps actually. UPM students do handmilk these cows still for educational purposes. (how fun their courses must be!) I dream one day to own our own cow for milking. Fresh unprocessed milk everyday! I can make cheese! butter! cream! soap! hehe...wishful thinking but who knows, right.


The kids get to feed the baby calfs. The smell of fresh milk is amazing - delicious, fresh, sweet. It was not what I imagined the smell would be. Different than the milk you purchase at supermarkets. We went to their mart to purchase some fresh milk but they've run out quick. There is a high demand and you can only get them in the morning, 3 days a week. Very dissapointed. I will go again insyaallah early morning to get some milk.


After the cows, we went to see some deers. Cute baby deer here named Tin. The other deers are wild creatures and shy away from human contact. But Tin is quite friendly.


Male deers grow new antlers every year. The old ones drop like these.


Next we went to see the horses. Horse riding for the kids! The horses here are well cared for and it shows. They look very beautiful and healthy. Shiny hair and muscly.


Kids had fun feeding carrots to the horses.

It was a nice trip. Will go back again for the milk ;)

My Tummy do really lovely pregnancy tops and breastfeeding clothing- all the products are made in Europe with unique designs that have delicate zippers and are free of harmful substances that can cause allergies. The pregnancy tops and bottoms also go up to size XXL for ladies with very big bumps! And the clothing comfortably grows as you grow so you don't have to worry about garments not fitting in a month or two.
