Leesport Farmers' Market
Alfalfa, Duckwheat, Clover and Barley were stolen, along with several pigs and a sheep from a Berks County farmers' market.

"Woody" Weist had a farm, E-I-E-I-O. And on his farm, he had some goats...

That's right, HAD.

Four baby goats, four 600-pound pigs and a 100-pound sheep were stolen from Leesport Farmers' Market in Ontalaunee Township, Berks County overnight Wednesday, according to its owner Daniel "Woody" Weist.

The goats, Alfalfa, Duckwheat, Clover and Barley, the pigs and the sheep were inside a padlocked barn when someone used a bolt cutter to gain access and took the animals, said Weist.

The theft marks the first time an animal has been stolen since the farm opened in 1947.

A $200 reward is being for information on the stolen farm animals. If you have any information, call the market at 610-926-1307.
