Higgledy Piggledy gives to CCF

Christmas is a time for giving which is exactly what you’ll do when you purchase a Higgledy-Piggledy Farm children’s book. Give any book to your children and the authors will donate half the proceeds to the Cambodian Children’s Fund. There are three titles in the Higgledy-Piggledy Farm Series and one of them is an original, Australian Christmas tale. It’s called The Dairy First Ice Cream Christmas and it’s only $1.99 (iBook). The other titles include The Importance of Poo! $1.99 iBook (also available as an interactive iBook with sound $3.99 or in paperback: $15 + postage); and Pigs Might Fly But They Can’t Lay Eggs $1.99 (iBook). This means you can collect the whole iBook series for as little as $6. The iBooks are available from iTunes http://bit.ly/1ddb9SM and the Poo! paperbacks are available right here from our bookstore http://thetassiefarm.com.au/book-store/

All the animals on Higgledy-Piggledy Farm and The Tassie Farm wish you and your family a very Dairy Christmas and a Happy Moo Year!

Thank Poo! Gardening Club

February 3, 2014

middleton country fair the tassie farm

Thank you to The South Channel Gardening Club for helping us spread the word about the newly-released ‘The Importance Of Poo!’ paperbacks at The Middleton Country Fair.

Glorious weather and big crowds were relished for the one-day event. While the gardener’s were showing off their fare, Kerry and Nick were selling raffle tickets at the Middleton Fire Brigade stand, where Nick is a volunteer fiery. Local celebrities took to the stage, namely Tasmania’s much-loved Tino Carnevale from ABC TV’s Gardening Australia and Nick Haddow from Bruny Island Cheese, Telstra’s 2013 Business Award winner.

Gardening is what we love and The South Channel Gardening Club will be selling the newly-released  ‘The Importance Of Poo!’ paperbacks at The Middleton Country Fair this Saturday, 1st February.

Rain, hail or shine, The Middleton Country Fair says it will be on in any weather! About 2,000 people usually attend the one-day event. There will be over 70 stalls including crafts, antiques and collectables, wine, cider, preserves, sweets, plus bands, pony rides and sheep shearing. And of course ‘The Importance Of Poo!’ for sale with half the proceeds being donated to the Cambodian Children’s Fund.

Held at the Middleton Community Centre in McDowall Street, The Middleton Country Fair is celebrating its 23rd year. The Fair runs from 10am to 4pm. Entry is free for children and $5 for adults. Middleton rests on the glamorous sounding d’Entrecasteaux Channel about 45 minutes south of Hobart or 25 minutes north of Cygnet.

Higgledy-Piggledy-Farm-Funraiser-Cambodian-Childrens-Fund

‘FUNraising instead of a Fundraising’. That’s what Jane and Kerry hope their children’s books are doing. ‘It’s fun creating picture books, so it makes sense we call it a FUNraiser,’ Kerry said. Cambodian Children’s Fund (CCF) recently interviewed Jane, one of the authors of the Higgledy-Piggledy Farm books. If you’d like to read the article, just click on this link https://www.cambodianchildrensfund.org/myccf/interview-with-jane-skarratt-childrens-author-and-ccf-supporter/

More importantly, if you’d like to buy the books so half the proceeds can be donated to CCF, just click on any of the iBookstore widgets on the right hand side of this blog. The books are only $1.99 and $2.99 each and are easy to download from iTunes with the FREE iBooks app, straight to your iPad.

An award? Pigs Might Fly!

March 13, 2013

speech-pathology-book-award-higgledy-piggledyOne of the Higgledy-Piggledy Farm ebooks has been nominated for a Children’s Book Award.
Pigs Might Fly But They Can’t Lay Eggs has been entered in the Speech Pathology Australia 2013 Book Awards – Best Book for Language and Literacy Development for Young Children (aged 2-5 years) category. The nominating, Melbourne-based, speech pathologist has over 25 years experience in language and literacy, working in schools and her private practice. This is what she had to say about this topsy-turvy tale:
“I love the repetitive idea and sentence structure that runs through this book. I think the story will be a winner with the kids as they love anything that’s a bit perverse – the opposite of what you would expect – a la Wacky Wednesday Dr Seuss.”

Celebrate Pig In Mud Month with a copy of Pigs Might Fly!
This hotch-potch misadventure is only $2.99 with half the revenue from sales being donated to the Cambodian Children’s Fund. Just click on this link for the Higgledy-Piggledy bookstore.

It’s a Swine life

March 1, 2013

 pig-in-mud-month
What a gig for a pig! And you’re about to find out just how swell it is.
We’re dedicating March to our four legged grunters. So, get ready for this blog to be hogged. We’ll feed you scraps you never knew were true  – that’s right, none of them will be porkers! For example, you know a sow is a female and a hog or boar is a male. But did you know, ‘Barrow’ was the name given to a young castrated male or ‘Stag’ if he’s given the snip later in life.

You’ll have the chance to vote in a few polls too – helping us name the farm’s four new pigs. So, let’s get down and dirty. We have bins to snaffle and snort through. Oink! Oink!

P.S (That stands for Pig Script) One of the Higgledy-Piggledy Farm books is called, ‘Pigs Might Fly But They Can’t Lay Eggs’. So, we’ll be featuring this story because its stars are pigs. You can preview this ‘tail’ at blurb.com Just click on this link http://store-au.blurb.com/ebooks/pedbc55270d1101204f17 Or purchase an ebook for only $2.99, knowing half the proceeds will be donated to the Cambodian Children’s Fund. http://www.facebook.com/cambodianchildrensfund
