Lattes with Lambs: Behind the Scenes

Spring (even cold and snowy) is always a really fun time to be on site because of the new additions that join our ranks. That’s right, I’m talking about farm babies. Each February and March, we welcome new Hog Island lambs and Milking Devon calves in a flurry of adorable bleating and wobbly frolicking. This year, to mark the occasion and share in the cuteness, members joined us for “Lattes with Lambs”–an open barn event that included coffee, hot chocolate, snacks, a Q&A with livestock manager Polly Festa, a sheep shearing, and an opportunity to meet the new babies face to face.

I had a wonderful time meeting new members, catching up with familiar faces, and sharing this wonderful place with the people who make it possible with their support. Please enjoy the pictures of the event below, and if you would like to attend the next member event, join or renew by donating $25, $45, or $100 today!
