FALL IS CREEPING UP ON US!

As you can see in the picture of a part of one of the Sweet Gum trees that line the driveway, the leaves are just beginning to turn color. By the time they are through with their fall show of color, they will be a dark plum color.
The hay is getting put in the barn for winter and the new RAM arrived yesterday. He will go out with the ewes in a couple of days. There are always a "million" or so things to do before the fall rains really hit! There never seems to be quite enough time to get it all done!
Just a reminder, the farm is CLOSED for October and most of November. If you would like to visit us during that time, please call for an appointment. We will reopen the day AFTER THANKSGIVING for the Favorite 5 Country Farms Holiday Tour.

OH MY GOSH

JAMOCHA ALMOND FUDGE HAS MORE THAN DOUBLED IN SIZE IN 5 1/2 WEEKS!
COMANCHE MOON is the name we settled on for the new baby mini donkey. He has not grown as fast as the baby llama. He will be 1 month old this Thursday.
He is much more "user friendly" than the llama. He will come up to be petted, but Jamocha will not do that. She does come up to me in the field sometimes and if I lean over a bit so we are at eye level, she puts her nose up to mine and sniffs my face all over. We hum to each other. Yes, llamas HUM to communicate!

JUST A FRIENDLY REMINDER THAT THIS IS OUR FINAL WEEKEND OF THE REGULAR SEASON AND WE HAVE A HUGE SALE GOING ON!!
COME OVER
PICK A DISCOUNT FIGURE OUT OF THE BOX
BUY YOUR HEART'S DELIGHT WITH THAT DISCOUNT.
SEE YOU
THURS. through SUN.
FROM 10 to 4

FALL UPDATE

FALL END OF SEASON SALE-
SEPTEMBER 25,26,27,AND 28!
DRAW A DISCOUNT OUT OF THE BOX
GET THAT AMOUNT OFF YOUR PURCHASES THAT DAY.
NOTE: DOES NOT INCLUDE FURNITURE


Our schedule says that we are shearing the sheep this week end, however, we cannot find the shearer!
It is time to get them sheared. We shear in the fall so that the sheep have enough time to grow some fleece before it gets too cold but not enough time to be so "wooly"
that they take up too much room in the barn. Getting "brushed" by them as they run by, is like getting hit with a very wet sponge, pretty soon you are soaked!
If anyone reading this knows of a good shearer, call us!
Just a couple of reminders, we will be open until the last Sunday in September and our Fall Sale will be a good one. You can draw a coupon for your discount when you arrive. It will be the amount of savings you get that day. Don't miss this opportunity to save on something you like.
We will reopen for the Favorite 5 Country Farms Holiday Tour the day after Thanksgiving. You will be able to visit farms that feature different things and are all located within a 4 mile radius. Pick out a Christmas tree at Rolling Rock Farm, find some great jewelry at Pure Pizazz and get your Christmas shopping done at Tollen Farm, we may also include a local winery in the tour. You will be able to sample and buy wonderful wine from them.

TRIPLETS !

TRIPLETS !
Here are the new lambs enjoying the grass!
