Farmland Adventures 2021

Fall is quickly approaching, which means that it's time for the Duggars to take a trip to Farmland Adventures. Do you remember the episode that aired in February 2012, "Duggars Planning the Future," when the entire clan visited the farm? We also posted pictures of the Duggars' visit on Labor Day 2017. It seems to be a favorite family activity for Labor Day weekend. 

A big group of Duggars just met up at Farmland Adventures, so we thought we would share this group picture. Can you name everyone?

    1. Anna is pregnant and could be due any day, as she’s due in fall. At any rate not likely up that type of activity

    2. Maybe she's the photographer or maybe she wanted to stay home and rest since she's pregnant. I kinda hope it's the latter.

    3. Mason is also missing at the picture. Maybe he wasn't feeling well and Anna stays home with him.

    1. Maybe she didn't want to spend a lot of time on her feet since she's in her third trimester.

  20. Looks like Jed and Katie have had their baby already,lol,Joe must be taking the photo so got Jed to hold Brooklyn,I can see a pink dress so baby must be her, also I've noticed Josh's kids are looking very happy, they must be totally oblivious to what's happening thinking he's gone to the same place he went to in 2015,thinking he will soon return home for good, how will they explain to them if he goes down, especially when they bring them to visit him in prison, I presume they will deny that is a prison, but they will find out eventually as they get older, everything not just that the place he is in is a prison, poor kids.

  23. Yes I remember the episode where Michelle was having contractions at the farmland. Jim bob and Michelle Duggar lost their 20th baby just all of sudden and Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar called a family meeting to suggest the baby's name ended up to be Jubilee Shalom Duggar. yes everyone had fun at the farmland and even Spurgeon at just 22 mouths old and yes some of his cousins & aunt's & uncle's had fun. now I remember the two shows very clear now that I read about them but in other words I would love ♥️ for another spin off of the Duggars and the extended family members. I am praying for this to hopefully happen sometime in the future. I would be very excited ❣️ for that and it would make me very happy 😁 & make my day.

    1. My daughter always wears skirts, and it certainly never stops her from having fun. Matter of fact, same for me. We enjoy life just fine, thank you. :)

    2. There is pictures of them wearing pants at the house. Jana said it's a choice seasons ago.

    3. Why? My daughter always wears skirts and dresses by choice. She has pants, but just prefer skirts. It never stopped her doing anything

      Delete
    4. @1:43 But then you have to wear those leggings underneath summer and winter, which does not make sense.

      Delete
    5. It's also not a sin to wear a dress or skirt. 🙄

      Delete
    6. 2:39, you don't have to wear leggings. You can also get active wear skirts that have shorts built in. I have some like that and they're nice and cool. It just feels like wearing shorts.

      Delete
    7. Wearing pants or a skirt should be a personal choice for women. Parents obviously have the right to make rules for their children, but equating man-made "modesty" rules to the Bible or to Christianity is what's wrong. The Bible does not prohibit women from wearing pants, nor men from wearing skirts (Scottish men wear kilts); the prohibition is on impersonating the opposite sex.

      Delete
    8. Well, the Bible actually does talk about women dressing modestly in I Timothy 2:9. A family or institution that wants to be in obedience to the Bible has to draw the line for modesty somewhere since the Bible doesn't spell it out. So, yeah, if you're going to set a guideline it has to be "man-made."

      Delete
    9. 11:22 -- It's definitely man-made to make a modesty distinction between dresses and pants for women, where the Bible makes no such distinction. And on the subject of modesty -- frankly, sometimes I wish men would wear skirts, with some of the tight pants men wear nowadays. Why doesn't anyone talk about that?

      Delete
    10. 2:39, that is exactly what I said. It is man-made. If a family is going to have a family value of being "modest," they HAVE to decide what that means for their family, BECAUSE the Bible doesn't spell it out.

      Delete
    11. Religion is man made. It's about the relationship with God. In fact if you read the bible God hated all religions because it was man made. Google it and it will take you to the verse. Modesty actually applies for both men and women btw. And I laugh when certain cult churches says a man can't wear a skirt because technically back in the old days, the guys was wearing gowns so....

  25. Nice to see Si, Lauren and Bella.

  26. This is great. I am glad to see them enjoying themselves. I love watching this family as they grow. It's going to be hard to keep track of all the little ones and tell them apart now that the show is off.

  29. Perhaps Anna is the one that took the photo? Why y'all so nosey? Do you ask people on your FB that uploads photos "why isn't this person there?"

  30. Wait, is one of those kids without shoes? At a farm?

    ReplyDelete
  31. They raised 19/20 kids and they don't know the dangers of walking around a farm without shoes on? I'm worried for the little girl in the front, Meredith?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Actually walking around a farm without shoes is not dangerous at all, if anything it's the safest. I did it growing up and even as a adult. I'm not sure what kind of farms you been around. But judging by people's experiences there it's actually common to lose shoes lol. There's grassy areas that are bumpy. Easy to trip or get knocked out of your shoes.

      Delete
    2. I disagree, 5:19. A lot of things were did while growing up were not safe at all. How many of us had a trip to the ER or had a friend who ended up there because of something we did while playing? Farms are dangerous places to go barefoot due to the nature of the materials used on farms (sharp metals, wires, nails, etc.) and the animal waste. You can easily get a puncture wound, a bad infection, or tetanus. You're also potentially exposing your feet to fertilizers and toxic herbicides, some of which can be absorbed through the skin. You can get stepped on by an animal. A horse or cow hoof can crush a child's foot easily and severely damage an adult's foot. For all those reasons, I have to agree with the poster or posters who don't think it's a good idea for the child in the photo to be without shoes. If the terrain is bumpy, then shoes that tie like sneakers or hiking shoes should be worn. Actually, I'm surprised that the facility would allow a child to be barefoot. Seems like an insurance issue for them and I wonder if that info is posted as you enter. You know, the basic "No shoes, no shirt, no service" sign.

      Delete
    3. @5:19 Parasites, such as hookworm, can be acquired by going barefoot on contaminated soil. (Animals leave behind the larvae, which is in their feces.) You an also be exposed to bacterial and fungal diseases. Also, there's the possibility of stepping on a nail or other sharp object. Wearing shoes outdoors is a good idea.

      Delete
    4. Farms are not safe for bare feet. Yikes. My friend who's a veterinarian told me that he saw a person get tetanus on a pig farm after getting cut on a fence. I hope the farm the Duggars visited told them to put that child's shoes back on.

      Delete
    5. As someone that grew up on a farm and got hurt, scrapes and bruises I never got parasites or infections. When I moved to the city for college my clumsy self fell and got a nasty infection in my knee. So yeah clearly you guys never grew up on a farm and the only way its dangerous if you don't properly care for it and the animals.

      Delete
    6. If you all been to a farm where theres that much risks it means its not kept well and you should report it. Otherwise you are enabling animal cruelty. I was also raised on a farm and I am still alive. You guys need to do your research a lot better. Farms are safe.

      Delete
    7. No professional working farm would have wires and sharp objects around for people to step on. If they do they need to be shut down. My grandfather has a farm and is well kept. You can get in a lot of trouble and even shut down for not having a cleaned farm that can be both hazardous for humans and animals.

      Delete
    8. EVERY farm has things that are dropped or fall off machinery and nobody realizes it until someone steps on it and finds it "the hard way." It comes with the territory. Source: Family farm & horse ranch

    9. Let's put this debate to rest. Farmland Adventures wants you and your children to wear shoes. Their website says so. They tell you to pay particular attention to your footwear. They tell you there's a good chance you'll get dirty, so you are supposed to choose your shoes wisely. They remind you that you're visiting a working farm and tell you to choose sneakers or hiking boots for your children. Nowhere does it say to let your children take their shoes off and run around in bare feet.

      Delete
    10. 10:04 I grew up on a farm. My parents insisted we wear shoes outdoors. Well care-for farm animals are one thing, but there are also wild animals that can leave their feces on the ground that contain worm larva. Even domestic pets can become infected.

    11. I just love the horrors of walking around on a farm barefoot comments. Thank you experienced farm people who know what you're talking about. We went to a similar farm in California when my daughters were little. Never got a cooties or anything like that by being barefoot.

      Delete
    12. Every commercial farm venture/tourist site can follow all the rules...but you can't guarantee that all of your visitors will follow all the rules all the time (it's called human nature). That means there may in fact be small pieces of glass or metal on the ground any time at any attraction. Just be smart, be safe = wear your shoes and make sure your kiddos do. Easy enough.

      Delete
    13. A farm is suppose to be well-kept from any sharp objects, machine pieces and animal droppings. You guys sound like you went to farms that should be closed down my state. I never in my life went to a farm where I'm from where I can't walk barefoot. You guys need to report these farms you are talking about because if it's dangerous for humans to walk around barefoot, it's also dangerous for animals.

      Delete
    14. @3:27 Dropping a screw or a nail around a farm is no reason to have it closed down. If it was, everyone's yard would have to be inspected before anyone was allowed in it. Ever have a roof put on? You'll find rusty nails for years after. Having animal waste on your shoes is not a reason to shut down a farm either. I don't know how you'd expect anyone to work with farm animals without coming in contact with waste. You have to muck out horse stalls and clean up after cows, pigs, sheep, goats, ducks, geese... Comes with the territory. None of those animals are housetrained. But there's no need to report anything like that. You do need to put shoes on though. Steel-toed, if you're working with farm machinery and tools or an animal that could step on your foot. You have to wear hooves, if you're an animal.

      Delete
    15. 3:27, human feet are not the same as animal feet. Humans can absorb parasites through bare feet and skin is more easily punctured than, say, a hoof.

      Delete
    16. 3:27 You really don't know much about farms and how they operate.

      Delete
    17. 3:27 Any commercial farm open to the public that I've been to, whether it's an apple orchard or whatever, has a rule about wearing shoes. That's to protect them from liability for careless people who may think it's their right to go barefoot on their property.

      Delete
    18. Wow y'all found something to whine about. A child in a picture without shoes. They couldn't have possibly had them laying around ready to put back on.

      Delete
    19. It's ridiculous that we had to debate Shoegate. Wear shoes in public. Wear shoes if you've been told to and don't be a bad example. Make your kids put their shoes back on if you see them without. Pretty simple.

      Delete
    20. A farm is different than keeping up with a homestead. You have to keep it cleaned up. You really need to do your research and please never open a farm because you would be endangering animals.

      Delete
    21. 5:30 - I think you're confusing farm "sanitation" with the physical dangers present on any farm. You can follow all the barn sanitation practices there are but still have rusty nails, broken wood, or a chuckhole somewhere around the farm. Keeping your farm cleaned up doesn't always help with injury matters. You're still dealing with heavy machinery, uneven land, grain silos, large animals, exposure to elements, exposure to chemicals, and so on. You can only "clean up" farming so much. There will still be dangers involved. Farming can be more dangerous than being in the military when it comes to numbers of accidents and deaths.

  37. Cute picture of the family. Sad not to see Anna or Jana in it. Same with,James and Claire,Jinger and Jeremy(and their girls) and of course Jill and Derek (and their boys). Might be missing 2 or 3 more kids,but not sure. Hope Anna is feeling ok. And Jana and the others who went with her are probably still traveling from seeing Jinger in California. And of course James and Claire live in Texas now. And sadly,the rift with Jill and Derek seems to still be going on with Jim Bob and Michelle. Hope to see ALL the Duggar family together again at Christmas,no matter what happens. Praying for them all.
