For, the winter is past, the rain is over and gone

The flowers appear on the earth; the time of the singing of birds has come.

HENRY LOVES KALE!

HENRY (the cutest) puppy has been stealing food out of visitors feed buckets at Winterpast Farm Petting Zoo in Wake Forest NC. Luckily he goes for healthy items like carrots and kale and then he, surprisingly, eats them! Farmer Mary discourages visitors feeding him crackers and bread since he is on fancy no grain puppy food and she wants him to stay healthy! Feel free to bring the dogs of Winterpast small dog treats but please don’t offer people food to the dogs! Thank You!

TRACTOR SUPPLY, AGAIN (AND AGAIN)

Farmer Mary and her daughter can fit an amazing amount of animal feed into Farmer Mary’s Mini Cooper! They are just getting back to the farm and are unloading this feed they purchased @TractorSupply in Knightdale.

Farm visitors often assume that the carrots and apples they bring are all the food the animals eat at Winterpast Farm Petting Zoo in Wake Forest NC. Not so! Farmer Mary spends an average of $700 a month for feed and animal supplies at Tractor Supply. Keep in mind that’s 70 farm visits! Have YOU visited Winterpast Farm lately? Please tell your friends about Winterpast Farm so Farmer Mary can continue to feed and care for all the animals.

If you ever want to help purchase some animal feed, ANY type of chicken or goat or rabbit food can always be used.
