FARM DAY

paigegreenWindrushLambs03192016-056

Saturday, April 14 

Spend the morning learning about wool and meeting the animals on the farm. During the introduction you will get to see a spinning demonstration. The sheep on the farm are a big part of what we do and with their wool we create roving, yarn and have classes to learn to spin along with other fiber arts. Sheep aren’t our only animals here. You will meet the lovely chickens, Bell our beautiful Jersey cow, and Trinka the goat. We will give a demonstration on milking Trinka, she is due to have a kid the first week of April. After we will feed the sheep and take a stroll through the pastures. We will end with a walk around the pond. There have been a few turtles spotted and you might even be able to find some tadpoles. Feel free to bring food and enjoy a picnic lunch by the pond.

Gates open at 10am, please arrive on time. The farm closes at 1:30pm. It is a working farm so we suggest shoes you don’t mind getting dirty.
