For, the winter is past, the rain is over and gone

The flowers appear on the earth; the time of the singing of birds has come.

WORK DAY TODAY-ZOO CLOSED FOR VISITS

A very thoughtful local husband picked up BENJAMIN the baby lamb early this morning from Winterpast Farm Petting Zoo to surprise his lamb loving wife for her birthday this morning. Guess he has raised the bar for local husbands regarding birthday surprises!

THANKS TO A “FRIEND OF THE FARM”

Good morning from Winterpast Farm Petting Zoo in Wake Forest NC!

******************

A really good “Friend of the Farm” dropped off this wonderful load of animal feed and hay last night to help Farmer Mary continue to care for and feed all the animals now living at Winterpast Farm. The animals and Farmer Mary really appreciate the gifts! It saves Farmer Mary a trip to the feed store today!

*********************

Farmer Mary is out side by the old tobacco barn waiting for a nice local husband who is picking up a baby lamb to surprise his lamb loving wife in her birthday this morning. Guess he will raise the bar for birthday surprises! #whataguy *******************

Farmer Mary just saw all of her peacocks going across the street in her neighbors yard so she alerted them to start looking around for peacock nests on the ground. This is the season of nesting and a Black Shoulder female peacock hasn’t been seen for a few days. The neighbors have a huge wooded yard and best of all, no dogs! Perfect safe place until it comes time to walk the babies back across busy Ghoston Road to the zoo! Farmer Mary is blessed with neighbors who love all the animals at Winterpast Farm!

DONATE A PINK CHAIR

Farmer Mary had another farm visitor deliver a pink chair today to Winterpast Farm Petting Zoo in Wake Forest NC. Pink chairs are half price ($9.99) at @bedbathandbeyond on Strickland Road and if you bring one Farmer Mary will give you two free farm admissions! She will even personalize them like this one with your name or pet name or even the name of your business. Farmer Marys car is too small to pick up the chairs and the zoo really needs new ones! Most are ten years old and held together with zip ties!
