Lambing    

Saturday, March 27 | 10:00–4:00 p.m.

Will a lamb be born on 'lambing day'? It has happened before, but not according to anyone's timing but the ewes'. Lambing season lasts for several weeks, and whether you're here to welcome a new arrival or not, you will find much to see and learn about in the barn where sheep spend much of the winter. 

On this day, you will see new lambs, meet expectant ewes, and learn all about the farm's flock of period Romney-Suffolk sheep. Other signs of spring are in the air: horses are beginning to shed their winter coats, bees are flying in search of early nectar, and if it's not too windy, farmers will likely be out spreading manure or plowing the fields. 

**Please note that all 2021 Saturday programs will be modified to encourage social distancing and reflect current State guidelines for public events. Visitors are required to carry masks at all times, and wear them when social distancing isn't possible. Thank you for your understanding, and we hope to see you soon!
