Snuggles with a purpose!

We've made the big leap from dairy to sanctuary, and we need you more than ever to raise the last of the funds for the new barn and feeder construction, which will forever change the way you visit Broken Shovels Farm, rain or shine!

All the snuggles all the time, from the tiniest rescued piglet, Charlotte to the biggest baby calf ever! If you haven't had a chance to hug George yet, you'd better do it before he is taller than you!

Come out and give out lots of love to all of our sweet farm animal residents, check out allnof our brand new farm merchandise and animal sponsorships, and of course, feed treats...bonus points if you can make new ponies Elsa and Anna smile and show off their pearly whites!

See the approved treat list below:

What foods are okay to bring to open farm days??? How do you feed a goat? Or pigs??

Goats are picky and should not (usually wont) eat off the ground. If you hold the bite sized piece in your fingers, they should take it pretty gently.

Piggies are a different story. They dont see well and rely mostly on smell for food finding. If your fingers smell like food, they will probably be mistaken for food. Pigs have SHARP teeth!

The best way to feed pigs is either a whole fruit with plenty of room between the food and your hand, or let them stick a snout through the fence panel before you feed so they cant jump forward. Or, even safer, drop it on the ground. Pigs are not picky at all.

Cut into bite sized pieces, peels/skin on:

Apples
Celery
Citrus fruits
Kale leaves
Berries
Melon
Bananas
Carrots
Squash
Lettuce/greens
Cucumbers
Broccoli
Green beans
Pineapple
Pumpkins
Pears

All of the above are fine to bring whole for the pigs only. Last week we almost had a choking incident with a goat swallowing a whole apple. Dont want to do that again!

Our biggest no-nos are stone fruits like peaches/plums/cherries and avocados. Both of those are not good for anyone here!

Nothing moldy or slimy, please!
