A little bit about Winterpast Farm:

Winterpast Farm is…

……a place to be outdoors with family and friends. The address is 12936 Ghoston Road, Wake Forest NC 27587. Located near Falls Lake at the end of Six Forks Road at Highway 98.

……a ten acre family farm near Falls Lake (formerly a tobacco farm, a Christmas tree farm, and a horse farm)

……an animal sanctuary where goats, sheep, emu, two mini donkeys several types of ducklings, peacocks, a goose, pigs and lots of bunnies, guinea pigs (most former pets) and chickens all co-exist peacefully

Winterpast Farm is……

……home. Farmer Mary and her two sons, Ben and Thomas Armstrong, moved to Winterpast Farm from downtown Raleigh the summer of 2003. Two years later they adopted Elizabeth and Alex from Stavropol Russia.  Ben is now a Junior at NCSU and a volunteer fireman at Bayleaf Station.

……a campground for Scout and church groups which includes bonfires, rocket launching, fresh eggs from the barn for breakfast (and occasional really early wakeup calls by roosters all named Bob)

……a unique place for fur children (usually dogs, but we’ve kept chickens, cats, and rabbits and birds) of all sizes to spend the day or spend the night (or spend several weeks!) living in a family environment while their own family is away or busy

……a place where kids can stomp in the mud, make noise, pile up rocks, bang sticks on fences, roll down hills in a huge plastic tube, search the barn for chicken eggs or the pasture for enormous emu eggs…

See some eggs of all sizes and colors!
