Our Trip To Fulmer's

Back during the summer, we had one of our Mississippi Farm Bureau Women's regional meeting at Fulmer's in New Augusta. What a treat it was! Fulmer's is the home to the big MS Pecan Festival every year in September.  We were able to get a tour of the old homes and the antiques from days gone by that have been relocated to the Fulmer's homestead.

It had rained quite a bit the days before our tour, so it was somewhat muddy.  That didn't lessen the experience at all though.  It was cloudy too, so it enabled us to keep somewhat cooler from the usual heat and humidity that we encounter here in the deep south.

They had chickens, turkeys, and guineas roaming about.  They even had a few goats too.  The kids were interested in seeing if they had any kikos out in their goat pasture.  They did have one that appeared to have a touch of kiko influence.  You just never really know.

Right before we settled down to enjoy a delicious down home cooked lunch, we were able to see their draft horses up close.  Then we were able to see them get hooked up to a wagon.

The horses were amazing!

I don't know if it's obvious, but that little girl in the picture below couldn't wait to see the horses. 

How nice it was for them to let her get up close to pet them.  That made her day.  She later told me that we needed to get some horses just like the ones we saw that day.  I don't think we're quite ready for that :)

If you're ever over that way in Perry County, you should stop by.  They have a general store that is out of this world. Some things are a little pricey, but the quality is great. I love their oatmeal they sell in bulk.  It is better than any I've ever had!  They are such genuinely nice folks too.  I'm so glad we were able to have our meeting at their place!
