Acres petting zoo is a wonderful experience
for both adults and children.
The animals are very clean and friendly.
My 3 year old daughter still talks about
how much she loved petting the animals..especially
holding the baby bunnies and chicks. Although
we have 2 dogs of our own, she still very
much enjoyed throwing a ball in the pool
for their black lab too.
Hope you enjoy your visit as much as we
did...you won't be disappointed.
We look forward to visiting again soon!

my 12th birthday not long ago, one of the
treats that I look forward to on my birthday
besides cake and gifts, is that my uncle
Edgar takes time to take me out to spend
time together. This time he took me to a
great place in San Jose, the Evergreen Acres
One of the reasons I liked the farm for
many reasons, but one of the reasons is
how nice the farmers were.
The other reason was because of how many
animals they had, which included goats,
rabbits, peacocks and chickens.
I liked the goats because they were very
affectionate, the rabbits because they were
so cute and fluffy, the peacocks because
they were so colorful and had great long
tails, and the silky chickens because they
look like punk rockers!
I also learned a lot, for example I learned
that peacock's tails fall of during the
summer. I also learned that there was more
than one type of chickens.
I enjoyed the tour and at the end of it
they gave us 5 chicken eggs for us to hatch!
I really liked the farm and will like to
go back soon.

I have had extremely dry skin all my life.
Because of this most of my life Iíve had
soap dry my skin further and so I was in
constant use of moisturizers. None of these
moisturizers ever worked completely, many
left my skin feeling greasy, and often caused
Then I was introduced to soap made with
milk, WOW everything changed.
Washing no longer dried my skin, now washing
actually helped relieve my dry skin. Soon
I no longer needed any of those expensive
moisturizers at all. Because of this discovery
I started to make my own milk soap. This
has become a labor of love. I have now started
to incorporate my own mold designs. So now
I make several batches a week, hand pouring,
hand trimming, and babysitting each batch
for the 6 weeks of curing.
Your Bunny Happy and Out of Trouble.
You needn't spend a fortune on toys to
keep your bunny busy and happy. If you
don't have enough toys, or proper toys,
a rabbit may cause damage to your home
instead. It's easy to give your bunny
safe alternatives to play with instead
of digging your carpet, sheet rock, sofa,
or chewing on your furniture and cords.
Untreated wicker or willow baskets are
great fun for bunnies who love to chew.
If your bunny loves to dig, fill the basket
with an old phone book to shred, a piece
of carpet (make sure bunny is only digging
it, not ingesting it), newspapers, or
Cardboard boxes are a favorite with most
bunnies. Make sure to cut out “doors”
on either end and in the front so your
bunny won't feel trapped or afraid to
enter. Your bunny will spend weeks remodeling
the box and chewing, digging and restyling
the holes. You can also add some toys
to the box for added interest.
If your bunny likes fabric and you want
to divert your rabbit from the sofa fabric
or your bedding, give your bunny her own
little towel to play with. Some rabbits
love to push around a towel, burrow under
it, or bite it. ( Make sure bunny isn't
ingesting the fabric.)
There are many toys that rabbits will
enjoy playing with that you can make from
things you have around the house. You
can take empty paper towel rolls and cut
them into 2” pieces. Bunnies who
love to toss things around will really
like these. You can also stuff the cardboard
rings with some hay for a fun treat. The
3” cardboard rolls that come with
the packing tape on it make great toys
when they are empty, too.
If you are lucky enough to have access
to pine cones (untreated, no pesticides,
etc.) these make a great chew toy as well.
Fill an untreated wicker basket with pine
cones and your bunny will be thrilled.
Watch your bunny for clues to her personality,
then use your imagination to offer her
some toys that will divert any behaviors
that are becoming destructive around the
Rabbits need to chew, and digging is in
their nature. You will both live more happily
if you can provide your rabbit with safe
and fun ways to do what comes naturally.

Your dog is a carnivore and not a vegetarian.
He needs meat. His teeth are quite different
from ours - they are made for ripping and
tearing meat. They do not have flat surfaces
for grinding up grains. His digestion starts
in his stomach and not in his month. All
the enzymes in his system are geard toward
breaking down meat and raw foods. There
is no doubt about it, Buddy is a carnivore,
and he needs to eat meat to stay healthy.
Your dog's body, as well as yours, is made
up of cells, a lot of them. Each cell needs
45 nutrients to function properly. The cells
need the following:
- Protein, consisting of 9 to 12 essential
According to a Swedish study, raw
foods pass through a dog's stomach and into
the intestinal tract in 4 1/2 hours. so
after that time span, the dog is already
receiving energy from that food. raw foods
are the most easily digested by dog. ...
Dry food takes 15 hours. it will be in his
stomach from morning 'till night.

Cleaning up after a goat is almost unnecessary.
They provide a natural fertilizer to the
land that only needs to be brushed from
patios to keep them clean. It comes in dried
pellets that looks just like dried dogfood.
Goats are easy to feed. Any grain, bread
or vegatables are treats. They eat grass
but mostly love to eat weeds, leaves, bark
and small branches from trees and bushes.
They are a natural yard cleaner and save
you having to prune larger trees or spray
for weeds. If you are prepared to protect
your plants, such as hedges, flowers and
garden produce, everything will work fine.
Goats keep the environment clean and reduce
fire hazards by keeping land free from dried
weeds, grasses and shrubs.
