After the guided tour, girls will enjoy a healthy dinner and watch a farm animal-themed movie: Babe-A Pig Goes A Long Way (1 hour, 31 min.).  It tells us a lot about the emotions of other animals and encourages us to question why humans love some animals, but eat others.  It stars James Cromwell (voice of farmer Arthur Hoggett) who is a superhero to animals off-screen.  He has spoken up to countless viewers that turkeys are just like us in all the ways that matter most and that we should leave animals off our plates.  Movie popcorn included.
