Congratulations, Leona! Another fall, another litter of precious piglets from this rockstar mom. She’s exhausted after a busy night of birthing, but you can admire her at the Barn Slide.

[A beautiful and massive mama pig- pink with black spots- rests on her side with a lot of brand-new baby piglets nestled with her in the straw. Her babies are all perfectly unique variations of black and pink.]

The smoke has cleared just in time for another exciting Smokin’ Saturday! Today’s lineup includes tractor driving lessons until 12:45, free mini cones (magic word required), and a veggie plant 99¢ clearance sale! We’ve got lunch, lots of delicious treats, live music 12-2, and the Foamhenge shuttle 1-2 today.

Happy Pride, y'all! This weekend, stop by the Corner Market and use the magic word "pride" to get a free mini cone with rainbow sprinkles!

Yes, free ice cream! Even for straight people! (Q***r peeps, you can snag a free "pride cone" through the end of June, while supplies last. Allies, accomplices, q***r-passing, and q***r-adjacent folks, we probably won't card you or otherwise require proof as long as you use the magic word.)

Corporate "rainbow washing" is problematic, but we fly our rainbow flags all year long, and we have for decades. We're here, and some of us are q***r! We proudly celebrate our LGBTQIA+ Cox Farmers, and we continue to support organizations doing important work to protect q***r and trans people.

Remember, the first Pride was a riot let by Black and Brown trans and gender-nonconforming people fighting back against police brutality. We honor their legacy by celebrating progress and continuing to work to dismantle systems of oppression.

[IMAGE #1: A mini cone with vanilla ice cream and rainbow sprinkles is held in front of a rainbow flag.

IMAGE #2: Hayride wagon painted with rainbow rails is piled with straw bales. Yellow text reads "At Cox Farms, equality is always in season" and at the bottom "It is so ordered." We first posted this image in 2015 in celebration of the Supreme Court's marriage equality ruling.

We're looking for a new leader for our Department of People! (You know, like an HR Manager, but on a farm so way cooler and not as scary.) This is a full-time, onsite position here on the farm, although most work will be indoors at a desk. Find details here: http://www.workingatcoxfarms.com/Default.aspx?p=323. Questions? Interested in the position? Please email [email protected] to discuss.

[IMAGE: A darling black and white baby goat looks at the camera as she sits on the lap of the previous Department of People Manager. They are sitting behind a desk and doing Very Important Work at a laptop computer. Although her neon pink cast is not visible in this photo, this baby goat was only on office duty because her leg was broken at the time. Obviously. Because we are a totally legit workplace and there would be no other reasonable explanation for bringing the kids to the office like that.]

Last call for Christmas! During these final, frigid hours at the Corner Market, you'll find great deals on trees, wreaths, roping, and centerpieces... and it's your last chance to stock up on apple cider, kettle corn, donuts, and other treats to get you through the winter! The Corner Market is open until 8 PM today (Friday, Dec. 23).

[IMAGE: A sign posted at the Corner Market reads "All Trees $25 each, Wreaths & Centerpieces $15 each" in green and red text. There are stunning, homemade centerpieces on either side of the sign, and a festive chicken statue perched behind it.]

There's nothing like a visit to Foamhenge to inspire thoughtful reflection and to celebrate the upcoming Solstice and the longer days that will follow. (Or maybe you're just doing it for the 'gram, and that's totally fine, too.) Your final Foamhenge opportunities for 2022 are today (Sunday, 12/11) and next Sunday; our hayride shuttle will be running from the Corner Market for just one hour, 1-2 p.m.

Santa's on his way! He'll be at the Corner Market 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. today (Sat, 12/10), so swing by for a visit! You can warm up with hot drinks and a toasty fire, and take some apple cider donuts and kettle corn for the road. If you haven't gotten your tree, now is the time! We have a great selection of premium fir trees ranging from 4 to 8 feet tall. The Corner Market is open 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. this weekend.

UPDATE: It's a Pumpkin Madness Miracle! We got a replacement high lift here just in time... giant pumpkin drop is ON, hopefully around 4:30!

A very disappointing Pumpkin Madness update: Our High Lift has malfunctioned and is no longer safe to operate. Sadly, this means we are unable to continue our Pumpkin Drop, and there will not be a Giant Pumpkin Drop at 4 p.m. today. We still have all the other Pumpkin Madness activities, including the trebuchet launches, Pumpkin Bowling, Pumpkin Toss, Wall of Spikes, Pumpkin Roadkill, and delicious pumpkin seeds!

This weekend is Pumpkin Madness, and we can't wait! In the meantime, we've started our Pumpkin Madness Sale at the Market, which is open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily through November 8. Pumpkins, squash, apples, corn shocks, straw bales, and mums are all 50% off! We have so many varieties of really delicious squash and pumpkins, and the price is capped at $5 each for the big ones... that is a lot of pumpkin pie, friends. (Oh, and speaking of pie, we've got a bunch of BOGO pies on sale today... they freeze great and Thanksgiving is only a few weeks away!) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QRq3w4BjMko

Every November, Cox Farms celebrates Pumpkin Madness. This video captures the season finale: the giant pumpkin drop.

10/31/2022

Monday, 10/31, 9:25 AM: It looks like some quick showers might pass through in the next hour, but the Fall Festival will be opening at 10 AM. We may close early if the rain moves in this afternoon.

This Throwback Thursday, we’re swinging way back to 1990 when the first rope swing made its debut! It wasn’t much, and it kinda hurt, but MAN, was it fun!

[Image: A few kids wait their turn at the single rope swing. It is lined with straw bales. Before we had the deluxe track and field high jump landing pads to land on, we had these cubes of foam to cushion you. Before that, as seen in this photo, IT WAS JUST STRAW that every so often we would fluff up with a pitchfork.]

First, the bad news: Sadly, the Fall Festival will be closed today (Monday, October 3) due to weather. And so. much. mud. The market will be open 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. today.

Now, the good news: The weather is looking SPECTACULAR for later in the week through the long weekend.

The best news: Leona had her babies, and you can come meet them starting Thursday!

[IMAGE: The lovely mama pig Leona is on her side nursing her many darling piglets. Leona is pink and black, and all of her babies are some variation on the theme, ranging from mostly pink with a spotted rump to solid black with just a few pink markings on legs and face. In an argument for writing your own Alt Text, Facebook's generated alt text photo description was "May be an image of animal and food," which is just rude.]

Weather Update: The Fall Festival will be closed on Sunday, October 2. The market is open until 10 p.m. tonight (Saturday, October 1) and then 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sunday.

Throwback Thursday- Back in 2019, Leona was among the cutest of the piglets born at the Barn Slide. She is settling in again and will deliver another litter here this fall. Come see Leona this weekend at the Fall Festival- we'll be open this Saturday (9/17) and Sunday (9/18), 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. both days (last entry one hour before closing). Tickets are limited and only available online, so buy now! https://coxfarms.com/fall-festival/fall-festival-tickets/ (In the meantime, we'll post an updated pic of Leona in the comments.)

[IMAGE: Quite possibly one of the cutest baby piglets to ever exist, Leona hams it up for the camera. At only a few weeks old in this 2019 photo, she is already full of sass! Photo shows a small pink pig covered in black spots with one black ear. She is standing on a bed of straw, looking up and directly at the camera, and the all-black head of one of her siblings is visible behind her.]

Thank you for making our own personal hayride today SO MUCH FUN! 🎃🍁🍂🏚️🧙🧹 A lovely set up and gracious, helpful staff made this experience special for the whole family. That and the treats... 🍎☕🍩🍿The boys loved it so much we had to go through twice. The second time may or may not have involved a popcorn battle between the troll and the backseat hayriders. 5/5 ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
I just wanted to say you guys did a fantastic job on the drive thru hay ride. Lines and directions were clear, everyone had masks, displays and music were entertaining for the kids. You really made the best of a bad situation. Plus, the spaced out photo ops at the end with phone holder and sanitizer! Just brilliant. Thank you again for bringing a little bit of fall fun for my girls. 🎃👍🏻🥰
You make me proud of rural America!
Hi, we adopted two guinea pigs in March and Our girls love their Hay.... do you guys by any chance sell Timothy hay or orchard grass? I’d rather buy from a farm than store 🙂
Hoping to cash in on the BLM I see. LOL racists at their best
I just seen ur sign today BLACK LIVES DO MATTER N I WILL BE VISITING YOUR FARM VERY SOON ❤
Love you. LOVE YOU! When I feel like we are losing everything good in this country, you always restore my faith.
Wash your hands!
Please let me know when the activities will begin 🙏😀 we ready for some farm fun!!
