 Good afternoon friends so sorry the website has not been updated, I honestly find that it is easier to keep Facebook updated with all the day to day things so please make sure you are checking our Facebook Page. I will try to get on here more and update with what is going on for us. The critters on Mudpuppy farm are doing wonderful. The young goats are growing up to be as big as momma goat Lisle, well all but Gunther he is just going to be a little guy. The ducks are doing great we had 4 ducklings hatched on the farm within the past 3 weeks, this is not ideal but we are happy to have them. We adopted 2 Muscovy ducking's as well, the guinea fowl are loud as usual. As we have posted in the past we now have chickens and they are doing great, we have started to get eggs and are averaging between 4 and 9 a day. We have 4 beautiful turkey's, 2 males and 2 females so we could not have a better situation there. So the humans are doing good as well and so are the doggies Ginger and Honey. I have started to make a soap again and created a new recipe that is amazing, it is rich, creamy, bubbly and moisturizing. I am in hopes to have these on sale before Christmas if not it will be very soon after. Well that is all for me today, I hope you all have a fantastic turkey day or peaceful quite day on the 26th.

 Hello everyone, I know it has been forever since we have updated the site. A lot has happened here at Mudpuppy Farm. The goats are now home and I am working on updating their page, we have added 2 more ducks and are having wonderful delicious duck eggs laid every day. We also have added chickens and turkeys to the farm, they will also be getting their own page because we did not get the run of the mil chickens. I have added photos to the Farm Pictures page and will be getting more up soon. 

We would also like to let everyone know that we are at the Bucksport Bay Farmers Market every Thursday from 12 - 3pm with fresh duck eggs, guinea fowl eggs, and homemade goats milk & organic vegan soaps.

Time to shop small farms and artisans

It's almost that time of year when we look forward to going out and visiting our favorite flea markets and farmers markets. I know with everything going on with the COVID19 situation things are a bit different this year. I also want to put out there that farmers markets will still happen and we will take extra precautions to keep everyone and us safe. We are very excited to be going to the Bucksport Bay Farmer's Co-op with our soaps and free range duck eggs, with hopes of having vegetables later this summer. If you are local to Maine please come check us out. If you are immune compromised and still want to get things from us we are working hard to make that happen, more details to come soon. If  you are out of state or in a inconvenient part of the state you can order soaps from us by clicking Mudpuppy Farm Soap Shop or the image with our soap logo. If you want to learn more about the Bucksport Bay Farmers Co-op please click on this link Bucksport Bay Farmer's Co-op it will take you their Facebook page.

What do you do when you want to start a farm and don't have a ton of money? Pallets my dear friends, they are amazing, strong, weather proof and best of all free. 
We wanted to share with you how we have started building our barn for the ducks and goats. We have a good solid structure now and are working hard to finish it. What we need to do this is for the weather to work with us. 
Here are some photos of our progress and as we  make more we will update.
