JUST FOR YOU!

We are always on the look out for new and interesting items for you.
In an effort to make sure you get the best "stuff" at the best prices, we will be CLOSED this Saturday, May 31st,
The old saying, "The Early Bird Gets The Worm", couldn't be truer when it comes to the cash and carry, antique,and one of a kind items, section of the Portland Gift Show! We will, post some photos of what we find on this blog page next week.
Speaking of next week, starting Thursday, June 5th, we will begin ZANEY ZINNIA WEEK. I know, I know, the sun needs to SHINE to get these flowers producing an abundance of blooms , but we're going to give you a head start with these plants. We will have 2 types of zinnias for you to choose from, tall garden "state fair" zinnias and spreading zinnias. The spreading plants travel along the ground and the flowers are much shorter, but they are just as colorful as the tall ones. To me, nothing says summer more than a garden full of these richly colored flowers!
If you have the opportunity to do so, check out the article about TOLLEN FARM in the new issue, June and July, of The Country Register. The front cover features lavender.
The photo feature on our blogspot this week is of out 35 year old wisteria. When the sun came out, so did the flowers and when the rain hit, the flowers began to fade and fall, It is glorious when it bloome each May and it always smells devine!

SMOOCHIE & EMMA INVITE YOU TO THEIR FIRST BIRTHDAY PARTY

THE "LITTLE" GIRLS ARE TURNING ONE! EMMA WAS BORN IN APRIL OF 2007 AND SMOOCHIE WAS BORN IN MAY OF 2007. THEY WANT YOU TO COME TO THEIR BIRTHDAY PARTY THIS WEEKEND. The party is all day long from 10 AM to 4 PM on Friday, May 16th and Saturday, May 17th. Enjoy some Carrot Cake , drink some lemonade, and stroll around the farm. We have lots of new decor items to tempt you for your home and garden .
You are welcome to bring carrots or cut up apples for all the donkeys, and the sheep, but please, ASK BEFORE YOU FEED THEM! If everyone gave them something to eat, they would get a huge belly ache!
We may be able to set up an opportunity for you to have your child's photo taken with one of the donkeys,( we have 10 of them ). Bring your camera! If your child is lucky enough to be the right size to sit on a mini, and you want their picture taken on one, we will put them up on the donkey's back and you can take the photo. There will be a charge of $5.00 for that photo opportunity. These minis eat lots of hay and neeed to earn their keep. Donkeys are very social animals and they Love people, just remember to WALK AND TALK QUIETLY when you are around animals. If you run and jump and yell, they will too! (They will run and jump to the far end of the pasture.)
You can park in our field as it looks like we will have nice weather for both days. Please park with the front end of your car head in to the fence.
We do not have a public restroom here so stop at the Cheveron station in Wilsonville before you get here. We do have handi wipes to clean your hands after you pet the animals....before you eat a piece of the cake! Come to the farm and have some fun.
This is a treasure of a find and you will find a treasure to take home with you.
