Spring is in the air

Although Spring doesn’t officially begin for another 15 days, this balmy weather can’t help but get you thinking about putting away winter clothes, taking off the snow tires and packing away the winter sports equipment.  Spring also marks many things here at the farm.

New babies – We currently have 13 baby goats and 2 baby lambs in the barn who are all excited to meet you.  We are also anxiously awaiting March 31st when my wife and I welcome twin grandchildren, making a dozen of grandchildren!

Easterfest – The Easter Bunny will be hopping his way to the farm for March 31, April 1,6,7 &8 for our Annual Easterfest.  Live entertainment, puppet shows, wagon rides, face painting, egg decorating and the Great Egg Scramble.  An event you and you family will want to attend!

Spring Cleaning - After the snow dissapears and we are left with no more ‘it’s too cold’ excuses, it is time to head outdoors to freshen up our lawns and gardens.  This definetly applies to the farm as we clean up outdoors, freshen up the Play Area, clean animals stalls…you get the hang of it.  We are also inside the market getting ready to open our doors for the official May 1st opening.

New faces – As we open the doors for the 2012 season, we look forward to welcoming our loyal customers back to the farm as well as meeting new guests that will enjoy the fun and memories Downey’s has to offer.  Every year we also accept applications to join the Downey Team.  Please send your resumes to info@downeysfarm.com

Enjoy the last 2 weeks of winter and we look forward to seeing you in the Spring!
