SECRET (OR NOT SO SECRET) SANTAl

YOU can help Farmer Mary continue to care for and feed all the animals (mostly former pets) at Winterpast Farm by buying an item from the Amazon Wish List for Winterpast Farm Petting Zoo in Wake Forest NC. To find it go to Amazon and click on “Registries” (wouldn’t it be nice if they called them Wish Lists???!!!)then click on “Friends Lists” then type in Winterpast Farm. Be SURE to put a space between Winterpast and Farm!

There is also a list of needed items under the Donations page at www.winterpast.org.

Take your kids to Tractor Supply this holiday and buy a few bags of feed for the animals at Winterpast Farm. You would never understand how much that would help Farmer Mary this time of year when snow has cancelled several events including home birthday parties and. Live Nativities and rain has closed the farm for visits several days and extra heat to keep the baby boy goat and chicks warm raises the electricity bill considerably. Farmer Mary is still saving each penny for second semester tuition at AppState for the Farmers Daughter.

Keep the animals in mind please when shopping for the holidays! Farmer Mary has many of her unique handmade clay ornaments for sale. Paid farm visit not required for purchase. Every $5 really helps Farmer Mary continue to care for and feed all the animals at Winterpast Farm.
