Holiday Fundraiser Open Farm, Gift Market And (Puppy) Snuggle

This is our LAST big Open Farm and Snuggle party of 2017, as we prepare to hunker down for a cold winter.

With the arrival of our ELEVEN foster puppies, the snuggles get even cuter! Baby cow kisses from our superstars Maximus, George, Ralphie and little Forrest, pig belly rubs and of course, SO MANY

sweet goats who can't wait to see you.

We will have lots of gift items for sale, including our now -famous vegan, gluten/nut/soy free chocolate truffles, shortbread dough, jams from RedCamper and sponsorships...the perfect gift for the animal lover in your life!

$5 per person entry fee.

As always, you can bring treats to feed the goats...if you are ready to brave many obnoxious little treat-seekers ready to search out and take everything you've got.

What foods are okay to bring to open farm days??? How do you feed a goat? Or pigs??

Goats are picky and should not (usually wont) eat off the ground. If you hold the bite sized piece in your fingers, they should take it pretty gently.

Piggies are a different story. They dont see well and rely mostly on smell for food finding. If your fingers smell like food, they will probably be mistaken for food. Pigs have SHARP teeth!

The best way to feed pigs is either a whole fruit with plenty of room between the food and your hand, or let them stick a snout through the fence panel before you feed so they cant jump forward. Or, even safer, drop it on the ground. Pigs are not picky at all.

Cut into bite sized pieces, peels/skin on:

Apples
Celery
Citrus fruits
Kale leaves
Berries
Melon
Bananas
Carrots
Squash
Lettuce/greens
Cucumbers
Broccoli
Green beans
Pineapple
Pumpkins
Pears

All of the above are fine to bring whole for the pigs only. Last week we almost had a choking incident with a goat swallowing a whole apple. Dont want to do that again!

Our biggest no-nos are stone fruits like peaches/plums/cherries and avocados. Both of those are not good for anyone here!

Nothing moldy or slimy, please!

Also seems like a good place to mention, please leave your animal companions at home. We will not allow any outside animals on the property, nor left in cars. Just an extremely important safety note!
