We have a lot of 'hands on' activity with the sheep and Goats. The kids learn about small ruminants from the birth through the dairy/milking. We have meetings that teach health and care, handling, safety, working with wool, making cheese and more!
We hope to share our love and passion for sheep, goats and life on the farm- especially for kids that don't have farm animals at their home.
