VEGGIES A BIG HIT AT WINTERPAST

Some of Farmer Mary’s cucumbers grew too big to eat so she cut them up to feed the birds at Winterpast Farm Petting Zoo in Wake Forest NC. The chickens and ducks love to get to the seeds first but they also like the other parts.  Feel free to donate any of your overgrown or excess garden produce to the animals at Winterpast Farm. At the emd of the season you can gather up vines and foliage and bring that too!  Thank you for supporting a small local farm family.

PAINTED ROCK UPDATE

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 reported hidden locally! Be sure to text Farmer Mary a photo to post where you hide a rock and if you find one! 919-244-1800.

Cute hedgehog rock hidden today outside the SAS building at NCSU. Hidden by Farmer Mary’s youngest son who is a Freshman in the Business school.

PEACOCKS

Here are two of the four adult peacocks living at Winterpast Farm Petting Zoo in Wake Forest NC. The peahen to the left just showed up last year and Farmer Mary thought she was a “Cameo” breed but further research indicates she is a “Black Shoulder” breed. She had a solid white baby (called a peachick) and a baby her same color this Spring. It will be a long time before Farmer Mary knows if they are male or female. She is really hoping the solid white one is a male!

The mature male pictured here has molted his long beautiful tail feathers and Farmer Mary has them for sale this time of year to help pay for feed for all the peacocks. Maybe in a few years she will have beautiful long white tail feathers to sell!
