MEET A NICE GUINEA PIG

Former pet guinea pigs have a great life at Winterpast Farm Petting Zoo where they are held and fed and brushed by our visitors. Shown here are PUMPKIN, OREO and COOKIES&CREAM. Did you know that you can rent a guinea pig for a week from Winterpast Farm and take it home to care for? You will also find out in less than a week just how much poop one guinea pig can poop! Read more at Pet Rental at www.winterpast.org.

PAINTED ROCKS HELP PROMOTE PETTING ZOO

Farm visitors are given the opportunity to pick a hand painted (by Farmer Mary) rock to take and hide for someone else to find. That person can bring the rock back to Winterpast Farm and get one free admission! Hiding rocks helps promote Winterpast Farm Petting Zoo in Wake Forest NC. 

Here are a few of the rocks Farmer Mary has just finished painting. They are getting several coats of spray Acrylic to help preserve them in the wearher. These will soon be hidden locally! Be sure to text Farmer Mary a photo to post exactly where you hide a rock and if you find one! 919-244-1800.

GATHER EGGS WITH FARMER MARY

Today these three farm visitors helped Farmer Mary gather eggs to buy. The children were suprised to find blue eggs, green eggs, brown eggs,  big eggs, little eggs…just one white egg!

Let Farmer Mary know if you want to gather and buy eggs during your farm visit and she will be sure to not gather eggs that morning so there will be plenty to find. 

If you would like to meet all the animals and perhaps help gather eggs, 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.

RENT A RABBIT!

Farmer Mary was putting together some Bunny and some Guinea Pig Pet Rental bags today at Winterpast Farm Petting Zoo in Wake Forest NC. Read more about our unique Pet Rental program at www.winterpast.org.
In the bag are newspapers for bedding, a specific animal care book, age appropriate animal story books, a cloth to use as a nest for your lap, an animal brush, bowls for food and water, feed and hay, instructions, and some of Farmer Mary’s business cards to give friends.  
Rent a bunny or guinea pig for a week and find out how much they poop and most renters quickly get over the idea of owning one. A rental can be a great gift from a Grandparent. It can be a great teacher or classroom gift-a temporary classroom pet!
If you would like to meet all the animals and chat with Farmer Mary about possible future pet rental, 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.
