A day on the farm should always include time to meet all the interesting farm animals and various critters that have found their way to Carolyn's Country Cousins.
We've got some interesting animal friends at the farm.
The baby goats will love to see you. These little guys have a big appetite, and we have healthy goat snacks available for purchase so that you can hand feed them.
And this floppy eared fellow will make it perfectly clear why he and his kind are called "stubborn as a mule!"
The geese, of course, will be anxious to give you a loud welcome. Have you ever seen a goose egg? What about an ostrich egg? Is it bigger? Come out to the farm and see for yourself.
Did you know that part of your admission dollars directly contribute to Carolyn’s mission of saving and preserving native and heritage farm animals?
Endangered animals are more than exotic creatures in far off lands. Many old yet previously common animals are disappearing from our farms as rural lifestyles have changed. Animals that produce more meat, more milk, more eggs or more wool have been bred by prosperous farmers. The farm animals that were not as productive have declined in their numbers. Many breeds are close to being extinct.
Why is this important to save these animal breeds? It is called genetic diversity. These animals have tremendous genetic value. However, these animals have limited market value.
