It is hibernation season for our nursery tortoises, but all other creatures here are enjoying the cooler weather and hope of rain. Come by and check on Poinsettia (cow) and Georgette (horse), the milk goats, our turkeys-with-attitude, and the ever-busy flock of chickens and ducks. Those chickens and ducks (and all necessary equipment) are available for sale to interested urban poultry farmers.
Inside the store, Emma (dog), KC (cat), and Limpy & Gimpy (parrots) appreciate a kind word from customers too! But no fingers in the parrot cage.
