RENT ANIMALS AT WINTERPAST FARM FOR CHURCH LIVE NATVITY PROGRAMS

Farmer Mary is taking reservations now for her animals to be a part of local church Live NATVITY programs. Most churches select goats or a goat and lamb combo. Two animals are available for $100 for several hours.
The baby goats available right now are twins JESSE (white and brown) and JAMES (black) but we may have tiny babies (or a Mother/baby combo) available in December.
Chickens, large fluffy bunnies are also available. Farmer Mary rented a chicken to Crossroads Fellowship Church years ago and it laid an egg (very loudly!) during the Live Nativity!

TURKEY LURKEY enjoyed some feeding and petting by children dressed in Halloween costumes. Many of them had been to breakfast at NO FO with a dressed up “monster”! Bunnies didn’t mind being held by princesses, Spider-Man, a lady bug, cowboys and more! They gobbled up kale and carrots and crackers eagerly.
