Whats that smell? Farm Critter Haven is looking for cleanup volunteers this Saturday. Animals create a lot of poop; come help clean it up! If you have any old garden tools you can donate or are willing to buy new such as pitchforks, rakes, and shovels please join us in the pasture with the ponies, cattle, and alpacas for poop clean up. They will also have old animal feed bags for anyone who wishes to scoop up and bring this wonderful manure home to their garden or compost with them!
