When they arrived at our farm, it was a perfect day outside, so we sat on our back deck and talked for awhile and then walked around our farm.
We showed them some of our cattle, the feed that we feed them, and our machine shed. They also got to sample some deer jerky and loved it!
Since they were visiting in the afternoon, I wanted to make them something to eat for a snack, so with the help of my Facebook friends, I came up with Sweet Corn Ice Cream with a Blackberry Sauce.

We also grilled some sweet corn for them to try too. It was all a hit! I was told that I needed to commercialize my sweet corn ice cream and that they would buy a ton of grain and a container of ice cream at the same time!
Right before the group left, we planted a tree that I recently received at my Ag-Urban Initiative Leadership graduation. Each of my classmates were given a Swamp White Oak tree (native to Iowa) from our leaders. It was a really neat gift and really symbolic of everything that we talked about in our classes over the past six months. We thought that it would be a neat thing to do with the Taiwan group while they were here.

After that, we had to say our goodbyes. I wish we had more time together, but they had to head back to Omaha, NE for the evening.
