Tilly Foster Farm’s New Social Sites

 

Since we held the public hearings concerning Tilly Foster Farm, Putnam County has been busy implementing Phase 1 of the comprehensive plan that you helped to create. 

 

One of the projects we are most excited about is the reintroduction of low maintenance farm animals to the Tilly Foster Farm. Teresa Delahanty, a veterinary technician, is caring for the new chicks which were brought to the farm this past Saturday. The chicks are currently living in the nursery coop which was built by Tom Quinn as part of his Eagle Scout Project for the Boy Scouts. 

 

The county is also preparing for the arrival of the pigs and alpaca that will call Tilly Foster Farm home within the coming weeks. Over the next few months, other animals such as goats, rabbits and cows will also move to Tilly Foster Farm.

 

The county has also designed www.PutnamTillyFoster.com, a website devoted to the news and happenings of Tilly Foster Farm. To complement the website we have also created social media profiles on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/tillyfosterfarm), Twitter(https://twitter.com/TillyFarm) , Instagram (http://instagram.com/tillyfosterfarm), Pinterest (http://www.pinterest.com/tillyfosterfarm/) and Google+ (https://plus.google.com/108624981001339538955/posts/p/pub) as tools to help spread the word about what is going on at Tilly Foster Farm. 

 

We welcome you to like, follow and share our pages and check back regularly for updates on what is going on at Tilly Foster Farm.
