No day trip around Nova Scotia is complete without a stop at a farm market for fresh local vegetables and homemade baked goods. A number of markets has expanded their offerings to include “farm friends” as well – small, friendly farm animals. When I was in the Annapolis Valley recently, I had the chance to meet the farm friends at two stops.

First, Noggins Corner Farm Market in Greenwich, Nova Scotia, where meeting the mini horses was an extra special treat after buying some fresh, local spinach and other salad fixings. Fans of Parks and Recreation should be pretty jealous, because we have not one, but three L’il Sebastians, though only two would pose together:

Then, I made my way to Hennigar’s Farm Market, to browse the plants, get an ice cream, and meet some curious rabbits:

The real entertainment was the rambunctious goats. The little ones flew back and forth, floppy ears flying, jumping and charging, delighting the kids (and me).
