* * * 7 days a week, 10am to 6pm * * *
It's taken us 5 and a 1/2 years to comfortably get here and we are now a team of six full time (Naomi, Adam, Becca, Jon, Ryan and Katie) and one part time year round (Mary, my mom!) and two part time (Nellie and Mike) seasonal people. We know you've wanted it and we're super excited to be here for you.
Photo Quiz: Becca and Naomi dancing with the goats? Or.... could it be the day Naomi lost her keys in the pen all day, only for Jon to nicely find them before we closed and accidentally flicked them into his face with a compost fork, just after Oona was preparing to leave work and had freshly peed on them? You decide!)
