Welcome the Environmentalists

EarthDayOur first due date this year for new births was Earth Day, so we thought we should honor that (and our Farm’s strong philosophy) by choosing Environmentalists as the naming scheme for the year.

Several inspirational environmentalists, conservationists and ecologists that have made a difference in this world have already been suggested but we need more.  So who has inspired you?  Or who do you suggest?

Only one pair of goats has been actually named, so at tomorrow’s tour we will start matching name nominations with the goat kids and piglets that have arrived.  And we will need names for the next batch of piglets as well as the turkey poults that arrive soon and the chicks coming later this summer.
