Goat - A - Gram

Happy Valentine's Day to you and yours!  I stopped by the grocery store yesterday afternoon and almost all the Valentine's Day candy was gone - it's time for the Easter Bunny.  I'm always a day late and a dollar short but . . . . . you can always get a Goat-A-Gram for your loved one.  Yes, it's true, for a mere $100, Farmer Brown (actually farm owner Andrew Crihfield) will arrive at your doorstep in a pair of overalls, toting Blue and May, a pair of 8-month old Nubian goats and a bouquet of flowers - unless the goats eat them first - for a 30-minute visit.  Goats bring a different portrait of "love" than the usual flowers and chocolate  - they are bold, stubborn and hungry!  What a great idea and they have done goat yoga sessions, goat pumpkin-carving parties and who knows what's in the future for Blue and May.
