MAXINE THE BUNNY

This is MAXINE the Lop eared bunny who loves to nibble on the stems of fresh Maple leaves. She also likes carrots, apple slices, kale, green beans and other veggies our farm visitors bring to feed the animals at Winterpast Farm Petting Zoo in Wake Forest NC.

Farmer Mary is watching the weather and hopes to be open today for visits from 12-5. Rain will close the farm since she can’t keep benches dry for animal holding and bunnies and guinea pigs don’t like to get wet. When it rains the pastured animals head to the barn out of sight of our visitors. Check in before coming. Texting ONLY – 919-244-1800.

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.

CHARLIE AND OREO

A few of the animals at Winterpast Farm Petting Zoo are resting after a very busy morning with farm visitors who braved the rain (that never came) forecast. 

CHARLIE the farm dog was earning his keep today as he caught and then battled a huge black snake (viewing the battle was totally optional for farm visitors) and sweet baby goat OREO was walked on a leash by nearly every visitor.   

Soon after closing early for the day Farmer Mary helped her daughter pack up a wide variety of bunnies and guinea pigs and chicks and a hedgehog for pickup for an away Birthday late this afternoon in Raleigh. 

Farmer Mary has a mobile petting zoo or you can hire her daughter, Elizabeth, for half the price and come pick her and the animals up at Winterpast Farm. Elizabeth gets rave reviews from home Birthday parties. Read more about home (or farm) Birthdays at www.winterpast.org
