DAISY THE PIG

If you ask Farmer Mary will usually let you out in the pasture to pet a pig. This is DAISY the “micro mini” “teacup” pig whose original owners were told would only get to 35 pounds.  

Farmer Mary is offered a pet pig who “grew bigger than the breeder said” EVERY week of EVERY year. Do not buy a pig and expect it to stay small!!!DAISY is actually white with black spots in the winter; during the summer she is North Carolina red clay colored since she loves her mud puddle on hot days.

Beautiful weather today here in Wake Forest Nc with lots of new and regular farm visitors. We found two nests with baby chicks hatching!

We have plenty of deep shade at Winterpast Farm. Shady picnic tables too!

If you would like to meet the wide variety of animals at Winterpast Farm Petting Zoo, PLEASE read the entire “your visit” at www.winterpast.org which very fully explains parking, our admission price, and lists a wide variety of food you can bring for feeding the animals.

PEACOCK

The male peacocks have shed their fancy tail feathers this time of year and Farmer Mary has the prettiest ones for sale. This helps to feed all the peacocks including the females (called Peahens) and babies (called Peachicks). We have a solid white baby that Farmer Mary hopes will be a male. It can take over a year and a half to determine the gender of a Peachick.

THOMAS THE TURKEY

THOMAS the Blue Slate breed male turkey at Winterpast Farm is always very happy to eat grapes, kale, cereal, crackers and romaine lettuce out of farm visitors hands at Winterpast Farm Petting Zoo in Wake Forest NC. Great up close photo by Farmer Mary’s talented son, Thomas.

TURKEY NEST UPDATE

Four eggs in the latest turkey nest! Turkeys, in Farmer Mary’s experience, rarely lay more than one nest each year and this will be TURKEY LURKEY’s third. We are hoping for some baby turkeys which are called “poults”. 

Farm is closed for visits today while Farmer Mary catches up on things around the farm.
