It's a date!

............for this evening to go to the movies with a very special 15 year old.  He's taking time out of his busy schedule to hang with his Mom!  He's been really looking forward to seeing this movie and it's showing at the new Cinemagic theatre.  I know I'll enjoy it, just because I'm going with one of my boys.  I'll post a review tomorrow :)

A glorious summer day~

Mornings just can't get any better than this one in my book.  A beautiful sunrise, 50 degrees and no humidity!  My kind of weather.
 I started the day with an early cup of coffee, listening to the sounds of peace on the farm.  No one stirring - everyone still nestled in their places of comfort, waiting for dawn to break.  Once the sun does rise, look out.  Things change quickly!!

Most of our little goaties have gone to their new homes. As you can see, they are very friendly and love attention!   Two little wethers remain for now until their new family is ready to take them home.  It's very rewarding when our babies go to loving homes, especially with children.  These children are adorable and these goat kids are extremely lucky!  

Time to get busy......hope you all have a great day!

Maine's Open Farm Day

Join us on Sunday, July 25 from 10 - 3 for Maine Open Farm Day!

Maine's Agricultural Community welcomes visitors on Open Farm Day ~ 

Every summer on the third Sunday in July, farms all over the state of Maine open their barn doors to the public to give them a chance to see where their food and fiber comes from.  Stop in for a visit.  We would love to chat with you about what we do here.  Visit with the sheep, draft horses, cows, donkey, pigs, goats, guines, chickens, ducks, rabbits, dogs & cats that make up the animal kindgdom here at Tylerfarm.  

Browse our Farm Mercantile.  We have a new supply of natural and dyed spun yarns  and roving from the sheep and goats that live on the farm and a couple of alpacas that spent a little time here as well.  Everything in the shop other than food products will be offered at 20% off!  

We will have spinning demonstrations throughout the day; farm tours at your own pace; a petting area and  folks around to answer your questions and chat with.  

The newest hatch on the farm ~

To read a nicely written  article about he farm and Open Farm Day, pick up a copy of the Tourist News.  A free guide to southern Maine and what's going on.  We were very proud to be approached by these folks and are so pleased with the article.  Thank you Anita for a job well done!

Hope to see you all on Sunday!
