DONALD the big white Pekin duck, PACKER the baby goat and ZEBRA the long eared bunny had a great time tonight at Vandora Springs Elementary School as part of their annual Winter Carnival. Students voted for their favorite teachers who then had to “Kiss the Mystery Animal” on stage. On teacher chose to kiss all three!

Farmer Mary is happy to take some of her animals to schools-just ask! Any event is more fun with animals from Winterpast Farm Petting Zoo!


Stay tuned for goat 🐐 and sheep 🐑birthing updates here and at winterpast_farm on Instagram and at blog posts at No need to text Farmer Mary to ask if there are any babies yet!


Farmer Mary still needs some tall (teen or adult) help fixing up some more maternity pens at Winterpast Farm. Read the Volunteer section at then text Farmer Mary to get started!
