NEWS Flash: March means baby goat madness and Farm Dinner Tickets

March is coming in like a lion; the roar of hungry baby goats is deafening.  Within the past few days we have had a surge from a handful of kids to 75 on the ground.  There seems to be a correlation with snow storms and kid storms, because yesterday during the height of the snowfall, nine does kidded with close to 20 babies.  Thankfully, our volunteers were able to trudge out here and help us feed all those newborns.  

March also signals the start of our season.  With close to 30 does now in milk, we'll be making our first batch of chevre tomorrow.  It feels like just yesterday that we made our last batch of cheese for the season at the end of December and put the cheeserie to rest.  Although the goats are trying to tell us otherwise, it still feels very much like winter.

We are also posting our "Dinners on the Farm" ticket sales starting this evening at 5:30 pm.  I apologize for the short lead time. I had intended to send out this notice over the weekend, but the baby goats just kept coming.  Ticket sales are pretty straight forward. You can view the dinner descriptions and then click on the link to our ShowClix page to book your reservations.  There are 40 seats per dinner on sale, and you can book up to 8 seats per dinner per reservation.  If you encounter any problems, please email me at prairiefruits@gmail.com
