During the winter months, the farm seems fairly quiet, but actually there’s a lot going on. The hardest working animals on the farm are our female goats, or does, who are in the middle of their 150-day gestation period. Each doe is starting to show signs of pregnancy as their bodies go into overdrive to develop the babies inside.

It’s this time of the year they deserve a little pampering! Come out for “Dote on the Does” and enjoy a cup of hot chocolate or a specialty coffee drink as you meet the moms of the babies that will be born this spring. Our staff will be grooming and feeding the goats, as well as answering any questions you may have. Watch as we measure and track the girth of the does scheduled first to go: Helena, Medusa, Periwinkle, Violet, and Zora.

While you’re out at the farm, be sure to take your guess at which doe will give birth first! Pick a doe, a date and the number of kids for a chance to win a free Prairie Fruits Farm t-shirt. (HINT: the kidding season starts in March)

Then come back into the Farm Store for a cheese board and glass of wine or beer, or just to warm up in a comfy chair, as you plan your next visit to dote on your favorite doe. The farm store will have a limited repertoire of cheese for sale, as well as other products: meats, eggs, sausages, locally milled flour, honey, jam, PFF&C “merch” and more!

Farm Store Hours 11am – 3pm. Follow directions to our farm on our website.

PLEASE NOTE: it is now EASIER THAN EVER to get to the farm, even in bad weather—North Lincoln Ave and Olympian Drive Eastward are brand new roads, maintained by the city of Urbana during inclement winter weather.
