It was a warm and radiant day at the Rype & Readi Downtown Farm Market, and most all the animal residents were enjoying the exquisite weather to the fullest extent possible. ‘Most’, it should be noted, save for the head of the chicken’s coven, Paprika, who was hiding in the Market’s barn praying that nobody [...]

It was a vibrant, lovely day on the Rype & Readi Fa-! “Cole!” “GAH!” The black-furred bull yelped as his girlfriend suddenly yanked his head to the side by his ear. “For the love of-! What in the name of all that’s good, green and chewy do you want now!? I haven’t done anything wrong, [...]

Outsmarting Clyde and Monty

By | 2017-09-02T18:46:49+00:00 June 5th, 2017|Animals|

It was a bright and sunny day at the Rype & Readi Farm... but calling it a ‘nice’ day would most definitely require an overactive imagination. “Come on, Clyde!” The reason for the day’s unpleasant atmosphere was a conflict that was ongoing on the farm’s property. The conflict in question was between Betsy, the brown-white [...]

It was a brisk, sunny morning at the Rype & Readi Farm; the rising sun heralded a day full of possibility, and the lack of any events being planned down the line meant that the farm’s inhabitants were all free to lay down, relax, and do whatever they-! “Cole! Oh, thank goodness I found you!” [...]

Caramel Goes Swimming

By | 2017-09-02T19:06:01+00:00 May 25th, 2017|Animals|

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. Or rather, it started in their general vicinity as they were so relaxed that no words were being exchanged. [...]

The farmer’s dog, Scruff, was an all-around good dog with a rather interesting history: while he looked just like any other dog, with his eagerly lolling tongue and his shaggy black and white coat, he actually came from a long line of sheep-herding dogs on a farm in France! Scruff wasn’t even his original name, [...]

This story’s focus shifts to a different, but still entirely valid, setting: that of the Rype & Readi Farm proper down in Elkton, a distance of a mere 12 miles (and a most scenic drive) from the historic city of St. Augustine, Florida. The Rype & Readi Farm was a beautiful stretch of estate, inhabited by [...]

Cocoa and Coffee get Makeovers!

By | 2017-07-27T15:57:23+00:00 May 3rd, 2017|Animals|

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. In this instance, however, the visiting animals were truly naught but visitors, and would be leaving all too soon for the other animals to truly enjoy their presence. Nevertheless, in spite of [...]
