2018 FARM TOURS DATES & THEMES

LAMB CUDDLE TOUR
Saturday, March 31, 2018     
10:00 am-12:00 pm

Meet the 200 new lambs of 2018 and learn how we keep the flock healthy, happy, and reasonably organized at this critical time of year. Photo opps galore! 

BABY ANIMAL TOURS
Saturday, April 21, 2018 
 
10:00 am-12:00 pm

Sunday, April 22, 2018
3:00 pm to 5:00 pm

The name says it all!  By mid-April, the lambs are born and the sows have piglets. Chicks are peeping in the brooder, and banties strut proudly with their free-range families. Bees are buzzing, and horses shedding their shaggy winter coats. Spring is truly the season of renewal!

SUMMER SOLSTICE STROLL
Saturday, June 23, 2018     
5:30 pm-7:30 pm

Although not actual Solstice day because June 21 coincides with Sheep Camp, this tour celebrates the long days of summer. We'll see the lamb flock at their most playful time of day, just before sunset. We'll use the border collie to move the ewes to fresh pasture, and see how those piglets are doing with their electric fence training. The sheep camp lambs will be penned and available for a petting.

FALL SHEEP SORTING

Saturday, Sept. 15, 2018       
10:00 am-12:00 pm

This is the day we separate the flock into groups to sell, keep, or breed. We'll use the border collie to bring the entire flock down to the handling system, a brilliantly engineered system of chutes, pens, and gates, and group the sheep according to their destiny. We'll also check in with the other animals like the ‘piglets’, all grown up now, the fall chickens, and the turkeys.
