FLUFFY BUTT FRIDAY

Farmer Mary just saw someone post a “Fluffy Butt Friday” pic so she is joining in with this photo taken yesterday at Winterpast Farm Petting Zoo in Wake Forest NC. This mature male peacock has been growing out his tail feathers after his annual molt. They are about halfway grown out now and he was testing their affect on one of the peacock ladies here. Nope she said. Not impressed, yet.

HAPPY FARM VISITORS

About once a month Farmer Mary hears a farm visitor (of a huge variety of age) who is interacting with some of the animals at Winterpast Farm say it’s the “happiest day of my life”. This photo shows a farm visitor who was so happy to feed lots and lots of chickens all at one time; Farmer Mary encouraged her to hold kale between her knees to get even more attention.

On reflection Farmer Mary realizes that not many people (if anyone!) get to hear that regularly as a celebration of their chosen life work.

Farmer Mary wasn’t allowed to have animals of her own when she was young although she did briefly take home a baby chick that hatched in her kindergarten class. She named it “Happy” and it followed her around her neighborhood in Schenectady New York.

Now Farmer Mary has more chickens than she can possibly count plus peacocks and ducks and emu! And mini donkeys, sheep, goats, and lots of bunnies and pigs! Farmer Mary loves to share her love of animals with farm visitors at Winterpast Farm Petting Zoo in Wake Forest NC.

GIFT CERTIFICATE ROCKS

Several people have asked if Farmer Mary has holiday Gift Certificates available at Winterpast Farm Petting Zoo in Wake Forest NC. We do! And they are truly unique and one of a kind!! They are hand painted (by Farmer Mary) rocks!

On the back is written “Return to Winterpast Farm Petting Zoo for one free admission”. The ones with one animal are $10 which is the normal cost of farm visit admission. Rocks with two animals are $20 and are for a person to bring a friend along.

Great gift for Grandparents to give their Grandchildren who love visiting Winterpast Farm! Nice to slip into a Christmas stocking too!

These hand painted rocks all have Santa hats and Christmas lights which make them different from Farmer Mary’s handpainted “Marketing rocks” which are available for farm visitors to take and hide away from the farm. Hiding rocks helps to spread the word about our little farm!

Farmer Mary doesn’t have a “marketing budget.” She spends all the money she makes just to feed and care for all the animals here at Winterpast Farm! FaceBook wants her to pay to send her farm posts to her own followers!

Right now following on Instagram is best if you want to keep up with the animal news at Winterpast Farm. On Instagram look for winterpast_farm and Follow!

Thank for supporting a small local farm family. Farm is closed today for a workday getting prepared for the big cold heading our way. Come help!
