As you wind your way around the farm,
Many are sure to sound the alarm.
Don’t be afraid–it’s just their way
Of wondering how you’re doing today.
First, in the Meadow, meet the gals:
Mischievous Misty and all of her pals.
Leah and Hazel, Georgia and more,
Plus Vivi the llama and kids galore.

Next stop is The Chicken Wing
Where you just might hear the rooster sing.
But if instead the guineas cackle,
Turn around before they tackle.

Now here we go, continuing on
Way out back behind the barn.
You’ve goat to be kidding me!
How many more goats do you see?

Next meet Lucy and Luke, Thunder and Storm.
Stroke their noses, soft and warm.
Be sure to watch out for Eunice and Eadie,
One of the two might knock out your kne-ee.

Moo-ving along, out to Great Pasture,
To leave the gate open would be a disaster.
Wave hello to Abby and Pork Chop.
If tempted to touch them, I'll tell you to stop.

If it's piglets that you seek,
Follow the bridge on over the creek.
You might find Sally bathing in mud.
But if she is dry, you can give her a hug.

Now that you've been around the farm,
We hope you've come to know the charm
of all our dear and furry friends,
Who'll be with us always, and that's The End.

Evelyn Wool spent numerous childhood family vacations on a real working farm. When her own children were grown, Evelyn began to reminisce about the smell of hay and horses, the sight of cows marching into the barn, and the taste of slurping juicy peaches right off the tree.

In 2014, Evelyn and her husband, Robert, moved from Connecticut to North Carolina to start their very own farm where are learning how to round up cows, out-smart goats, chase chickens, save pigs from drowning, and much more.

Evelyn writes about their fun-filled adventures on the farm’s website:
