I don’t want to exaggerate, but the night we spent at Silver Dollar Farms was perhaps one of the most magical times of my life. After spending the night in Kansas City, we drove to Lawrence and spent one night in a very charming Airbnb there, which I’ll get to later. We needed to spend one more night in the Lawrence area before driving west to Lucas to meet my parents and Nat’s parents on Wednesday, and after we picked Silver Dollar Farms I was so excited to see it.
SDF is a super sweet place, family owned and operated. It’s recently restored, but it was first established in 1860. We arrived when it was getting dark and we still got a lovely, comprehensive tour (Midwest folks are the best!). The farm offers horse boarding, trail rides, goat yoga, and more. Where we slept was a little cabin on the property with a clawfoot bathtub, two separate lofts, and a private yard (I missed Cody the whole trip but on this particular portion I missed him SO MUCH). We met a three-legged cat and so many goats and a very large horse and the most wonderful and playful puppies and we got fresh eggs for our breakfast. There’s a swimming pond that we… have to go back for one summer?! I seriously wish I could go back and visit this place during every season for years and years to come. Maybe I will!
Also, those purple flower field photos were taken on the way from Baldwin City to Berryton, where the farm is located. Kansas is so! beautiful!
