Thank you to Rhode Island Monthly readers for naming Pat’s Pastured best “Chicken and Eggs”!!!

Posted 8/3/2010 7:41pm by erin goodman.


There’s a new pup on the farm and we need YOUR help naming him.

He’s a 12-week old Anatolian-Akbash mix specially bred to guard livestock. Right now he’s in with our laying hens being trained by Shep (seen here) and having lots of fun splashing in the water bucket! When he’s older, we’ll breed him with Angel, who guards our sheep.

Got a good suggestion for his name? Come on over to our facebook page and let us know.

All this week we’ll be taking name ideas. Farmer Pat will choose from your suggestions. Winner gets a breakfast — a dozen eggs and a package of breakfast sausage. (To be picked up at one of our Farmers’ Markets. Sorry no shipping.)

Contest will be open until Sunday (8/8) at 5 p.m. We’ll review the entries and announce the winner the following week!
