This is Charlie. He is our new shop mascot. He's a mixed breed bunny and as sweet as can be. It's been awhile since we've had rabbits on the farm. The last breed I had were Angora rabbits for their fiber. They were beautiful and sweet bunnies but I just didn't have the time to care for them properly. Charlie loves to beheld and cuddled and I will enjoy his company as well as anyone who visits the farmstand. We will have a small petting zoo area for all the children that come to the farmstand. Tom will oversee that project and make sure our animals are treated nicely. We ask each person to use handwash before and after handling the animals. Most people really do not mind. The animals love the attention and the animal crackers ;)
Speaking of the farmstand, we will open for the season on Saturday, July 4. I have been desperately trying to get it ready inside and out but rain and lightening have certainly hampered our efforts. Dyed yarn just doesn't dry well when it's so damp. I had the wood stove going yesterday! I will try to post photos this afternoon when everything is finished. We are quite happy with the decor and the fact that we will have veggies to offer tomorrow.
- ~Wishing you all a safe, Happy Fourth of July weekend!~
