Hayrides, Petting Place, Local Vendors…….

Written by: Bobbie

Kids on the Phony Pony  |   …and lots of other things this coming weekend!

It looks like the makings of a clear and warm weekend. We have the tractor working and are attaching the hitching post to the hay trailer.  Stevie, the blind goat, and Belle, the bottle fed lamb, will be up front to greet you as you come from the parking area.

We’ll ask you to stop by the registration booth and meet Dr. Jennifer Taylor of FAMU, StateWide Small Farm Programs/Sustainable Development. Dr. Taylor is the one making all those Growers Markets around the area happen. She also is a big part of putting this event together.

Then you can go on to get in line for the hayride or stop by to see the vendors. Walk around the place and find the sheep and lambs, goats and kids, chickens and baby chicks. You’ll see the big dogs while on the hayride. Maybe we’ll walk one out front for everyone to pet.

Here’s a short list of some of the activities.
