How We Name Our Goats

Recently, we decided to start giving our new goats biblical names. This year we gave our goats names beginning with the letter “A”; next year we’ll do “B” and continue going on down the alphabet.

Since Violet was the first of our goats to give birth this year, we named her silver baby boy Adam – the first man. Mocha had two boys – Asher (silver) and Abed-nego (black). Eleanor was our only goat to give birth to two beautiful baby girls named Abigail (black) and Anna (silver).

Here are pictures of our new healthy kids.

The Pavilion is Finished!!!

Yay! We’re so excited to see that our new addition to the farm has been completed. We started building the pavilion in the beginning of April and finished it on May 8th. Now we have a nice shaded area for tours and birthday parties complete with lights and fans for those hot summer days and nights.

Here are photos of the progress from start to finish.
