It all started with Cocoa and Coffee, the resident Babydoll sheep, lounging in the lawn, enjoying the sun’s rays shining down upon their sheared wool and keeping them nice and warm in the cool morning air.

Yet another busy and special day at the Rype & Readi Farm Market, yet more out-of-town visitors to the local animals ever-so-humble abode.
