The 2023 Calendar

Ready or not, it's almost the new year...again :-o. 

Sadly, we are only offering the farm calendar this fall, not a Lamb Camp calendar.  I say sadly not only because I liked the small size and sweet pictures, but also because I didn't get anywhere near enough lamb snorgling this past spring :'-(.

It was a pretty good year otherwise and only a few tears shed as I picked out pictures.  Archie and Bea provided several good choices and some funny stories to share.  Of course Possum makes several appearances as do quite a few sheep and that dirt ball, Lancelot ;-).  

Frankie missed getting a big picture this year because most of the time I spent with him would have given me blurry action shots :-).  Maisie's back, larger than life, there's the obligatory chicken picture and some fun surprises.  I also included a different butterfly this year and some interesting bee information.

I can't fathom how I am once again writing up a 'welcome to the new year' blurb for the back of our farm calendar. Didn't I just do last year's only a month or so ago?!?

Many things have stayed the same, thankfully. Lancelot is still rolling in the mud, Maisie is still watching over her flock by night...and day, Jared is still grazing the yard, Possum's still sleeping in all her beds, except whichever one Archie has claimed at any given hour of the day or night, and the chickens are still...well, chickens. It's hard for Bea to keep our feet warm when she's sleeping belly up on the couch, but at least when she's asleep she's still. We still miss all of our old friends.

As always a special thanks to Saint Tim for doing all the hard work and heavy lifting and a grateful thank you to all of you who are such an important part of our farm family. Your care and kindness through each year, as they feel shorter and shorter, is appreciated more than you could ever imagine. Here's to another new year!

The calendars are $20 this year and as always, shipping is, well...shipping :-/.  For the local folks, if you are interested, we can offer pick up options at Tim's print shop in Corporate Center, just off New Circle Road and you are always welcome to come out to the farm to pick one up. Fighting New Circle Road isn't much fun, but coming out to the farm and saying hi to the sheep is always fun. Please email to set up a time to make sure we're around.

For the not local folks...I'm guessing the shipping is going to be around $10.65 for most of the country and probably $15 or so for parts distant. I'm still trying to source a more ecologically friendly mailer, so I'm probably not going to start shipping calendars until next week.  Please let me know if you need one quicker than that!

If you are interested in purchasing a calendar (or anything else from the farm shop :-), just send me an email  (thecrazysheepladyATgmailDOTcom) letting me know what you'd like and please provide your mailing address.  I will include an invoice and return envelope in your (hopefully greener) mailer or box and you can stick a check back in the mail (preferred method) or we can usually figure out how to do an online payment method if we need to. 

I know it surely goes without saying, but any purchases made from our on farm shop or website directly support the Punkin's Patch sheep (and dogs, cats, horses and even those stupid crazy Adventure Chickens), but also indirectly support the local farmers who grow our feed and hay, veterinarians who take such good care, our sheep shearers, the mill that processes our wool...and, of course, Nabisco and Keebler ;-).  We all truly appreciate your support.

You make the best calendars! I'm glad you post a few photos of them, as the exchange rate makes it not feasible for me.

I'm so sorry the embedded links don't always work. I've added the typed out version in a couple places. Let me know if it's still giving you trouble!
