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.

FARMER MARYS EGG ART

Chickens and ducks and quail all keep on laying their beautiful eggs despite the weather forecast. Farmer Mary thought she may as well have fun with the eggs this morning!

There are a few loose branches down and some light rain here and Farmer Mary and the animals are all just waiting to see what happens next at Winterpast Farm Petting Zoo in Wake Forest NC!

Farmer Mary will not post open farm dates or hours until Florence is gone. Please don’t text to ask when we will be open. We don’t know.

HENRY (the cutest) PUPPY

HENRY (the cutest) puppy is only concerned with keeping track of his tennis balls at Winterpast Farm Petting Zoo in Wake Forest NC. He loves being outside in the rain!

Farmer Mary has bunnies and guinea pigs and small animals safely (we hope!) put away in her garage. Her home dates from the 1730’s so it is pretty secure! So far we have a few small tree branches falling down (free pruning!) and some very light rain.

BIG THANKS to everyone who is currently hosting a small furry “Hurricane Buddy” from Winterpast Farm in their home during the big storm. Please remember that we rent small animals year round. Read more about it at Pet Rental at www.winterpast.org. And help Farmer Mary recycle existing pets instead of creating more! Please SHARE with your animal loving friends.

PLENTY OF WATER HERE

If the electricity goes out and the well won’t work the animals will still have plenty of water to drink at Winterpast Farm Petting Zoo in Wake Forest NC! Thanks to a special Friend of the Farm who dropped by to donate and fill up the gray water containers and then stayed along with her sons for several hours to help Farmer Mary get prepared for the big storm.

HURRICANE BUDDIES

A BIG THANK YOU to everyone hosting “Hurricane Buddies”! These are small animals including bunnies and guinea pigs that kind local families and individuals picked up yesterday ahead of Florence from Winterpast Farm Petting Zoo in Wake Forest NC.

The animals will all enjoy a fun and safe stay away from the farm where Farmer Mary has other bunnies and guinea pigs and small animals safely (we hope!) put away in her garage. Her home dates from the 1730’s so is pretty secure!

NEW THIS FALL

New for Fall at Winterpast Farm Petting Zoo in Wake Forest NC is this cool hand cranking apple device that skins, core and slices an apple in seconds! It comes with a weak suction cup, but Farmer Mary will get it bolted down securely soon and have it available for farm visitors to use. The animals will all love the fresh slices and they fit nicely in most animal cages..
