Dinner on the Farm with Zeb and Soapy Smith Duck

White Fence Farm is our favorite farm and one of our favorite restaurants.

Let's Go to the White Fence Farm

This is a real farm, with animals and more.   But, let’s eat first.

We enter the farm house and are taken to one of the many dining rooms.   We get a great table, right by the window.    It does not take long for our moms to order.   The fried chicken here is famous and very tasty.   Dinner here is served family style.   Our side dishes arrive while our chicken is cooking.   We start with kidney bean salad, creamy cole slaw, and pickled red beets.   All are delicious, but the star of the side dishes must be the hot corn fritters.   The remind our moms of warm donuts.   We love them!   Soon a platter of chicken arrives, with the potatoes.

Looks good and tastes wonderful

My mom ordered a baked potato.     Soapy Smith’s mom ordered mashed potatoes.   They look like ice cream, but the potatoes are perfect and wonderful.    We are asked if we would like more of any side dishes.   Of course we would!   Because we can have as much of the side dishes as we want, we cannot take them home.   But all of this chicken is ours.   We eat a lot and still have plenty to take home.   After dinner, we wander around the farm.   The weather today is very nice, so we spend our time outside.   Our farm has farm equipment, this tractor and of course, the outhouse.

We prefer the indoor plumbing.   Great carriage here.

Isn’t this a great farm?  This truck driver is our new friend.   We like his truck also.

It is a 1925 Ford Model T One Ton Truck.   When it was new, the price was $1,300.   The roof of the truck is fabric.   This farm even has a peacock.

The blue on peacock feathers is such a brilliant blue.   Soapy and I are enjoying our horse ride.

We even have a human friend riding with us.   These cut out boards are so much fun.

Soapy and I have the bodies of farm animals.   It is spring, and last week we had photos of baby pigs and baby geese, so now we have a young rabbit.

We love small, young animals.   The grounds of this farm are beautiful.   There is a river, a pond, and everything is beautifully landscaped and well cared for.   Look at this car.

Definitely belongs here at the White Fence Farm.   We love the area with goats.   The humans put quarters in the machine and they get food for the goats and sheep.   Everybody has a good time.   Soapy’s mom is feeding the goat.

Now the goats are being fed by other humans, so mom thinks it is safe to put us on the fence.

The goats are busy, so they won’t try to eat us.   There are many other things to do inside, also.   This is the Americana Barn.

There is a stage and dance floor.   Tables to enjoy refreshments.   A nice gift shop and our favorite fudge and candy shop.   Young humans can play on the two level tall slide.   But, today the weather was so nice, we stayed outside, except for a quick visit to the fudge and candy shop.   There is so much to do, inside and outside, so it is always a good day to go to the White Fence Farm.   When you are in the Denver area, don’t miss the White Fence Farm.   You will love it.

The White Fence Farm of Colorado

You have to eat at this restaurant!   I, Zeb the Duck, went to the White Fence Farm for dinner.

The food was great, but even if it wasn’t, this place has so much to see.

I went with Soapy Smith Duck, little Pumpkin Duck and our moms.   The front yard of this farm style restaurant has a gazebo,

We really liked this delivery truck for White Fence Farm.

This restaurant opened in 1973, as “Wilson’s Good Eating” and was an immediate success.   They added a Country Cottage to give diners an opportunity to shop before and after dinner. Country Cottage is still there and so is Giggleblossom Cottage.

In 1981, Wilson’s Good Eating made an agreement with the White Fence Farm Restaurant near Joliet, Illinois.   The menu was simplified, the award winning chicken recipe was served and the OK Corral was built.   Denver’s White Fence Farm was created.   At the OK Corral, we fed and touched the animals.

After all the animal contact, the humans needed to wash their hands.

Always wash your hands.

Around the farm we found a 1925 Ford Model T one ton truck.

This truck cost $1,300 when it was new.  It did not have a gas gauge.   A stick inserted in the gas tank showed how much fuel you had.   We liked this old farm equipment.  This Rest Haven was Out of Order.

Have to use indoor plumbing.

Inside the farmhouse, or restaurant, we found many dining rooms.   Each was friendly, cozy and very nice.   While waiting to be seated, some people sat in this area.

We had the famous country fried chicken.  Yum.  The chicken dinner has 4 pieces, or ½ a chicken. The waitress placed a big plate with 8 pieces of fried chicken on the table.   Everything was delicious.

After dinner, we visited the Americana Barn.  The barn is huge and attached to the restaurant.  There is an indoor play area for small children. The Carriage House has the Hen House Five entertaining.
