The Kids Meet the Children!

What a fun day it was at T. Cupp Miniatures!  Some of our share members were able to bring their children to the farm to meet Buttons and Bows, our Mini Nubian goat kids!  The children were so careful with the goat babies and things went very well!  Beautiful children and beautiful kids!  It doesn't get any better than that!  We had six children in attendance.  Thank you to the parents who took time out of their busy lives to share this experience with their children.  I believe it is so important for children to learn where their food orginates as well as to plant in them the desire to seek out humanely raised animal products. 

We had a snack of Chevre and Feta as well as the opporunity to drink goat's milk.  Each child went home with a bar of goat's milk soap. 















Note:  Permission was received from the parents to post photos of the children and anyone who did not grant permission, their child's photo was not included. I was unable to get photos of everyone as it was difficult to monitor activities and photograph at the same time. In the future, we need a designated photographer for such events

Babies, Babies, Babies!!!!!

For those who may not know, Mike and I (the farmers) are welcoming three (human) grandbabies into our lives in the very near future!  Our daughter Kristin and her husband, Nate, are expecting twins in May!  Then, our other daughter, Alissa and her boyfriend, Gab, are expecting a baby in August!  Lots of joy in our home at this time as we anticipate the arrival of these little blessings!  Grandma T Cupp is very happy to have been chosen as babysitter for all three little blessings and that means that T Cupp Miniatures MUST downsize before that time!  (The Cupp Family Farm portion of our joint farming venture as a husband and wife team WILL NOT BE DOWNSIZING because SOMEONE has to make some money around here so we can buy things for the grandbabies!) 

With that said, please take a look at our "Animals for Sale" page (here) and see if we have anything there that might interest you!

And to brighten your day, here are a few of my favorite photos of the animal babies that were born on our farm last week.  We had a total of two goat kids and four calves born in a week's time.
