We are in the process of looking for a new insurance company but have been told that agro-tourism is a special rider and can be expensive for us since we deal with live animals and the threat to the public of contracting e-coli is too great a risk for them. There are other issues with the company as well, but those do not need to be mentioned here.
It is a great sadness to us to have to close our gates to the public. We have enjoyed so much everyone's smiles. It was our way of giving something back to the community that has supported us in good times and bad. We will continue to be a part of the community in other ways and will still offer the hospitality to our friends and family. We will also continue with the "Almost Daily Diary" as best we can.
Thank you everyone and hopefully we will be able to resolve this problem. Here are a couple shots of Smokey and Bacon enjoying a refreshing drink.
