We are now CLOSED for the season here at Hathaway Farm! Thank you to everyone who came & visited us this year.

So, What’s New on the Farm?
All the animals are ready to see you in the Livestock Barn. We have a couple of new Miniature Donkeys named Amy & Miss Fascination! They are both super friendly & get along well with Henry & Louise (who turned 42 yrs old this year!). We are really excited because both Amy & Miss F MAY be pregnant!!! They were exposed to a Jack for a month & 1/2 so we'll see next spring if we have any baby donks! We alsostill have our Flemish Giant bunnies who tip the scales at just over 20 lbs. Little Weasie Bunny just celebrated her 14th birthday this year along with Grandma Hen (a Rhode Island Red chicken).........the race is STILL on between those two :). Flossie, who is now a yearling Hereford heifer, was born a twin, but her mom would not accept her. Her mom is a great mom to Flossie's twin sister, but because she would not except Flossie, we had to hand raise her with a bottle & she is living in the Livestock Barn. We will be artificially inseminating her in November in hopes she'll have her 1st calf in August & we'll have them both in the Livestock Barn! Then there is Harry & David.......our once "little" pigs who are growing rapidly every day! They are a tamworth/old spots cross (both heritage breeds) & are doing great!
