Keep movin’!!!… Might you know someone who would be interested in volunteering?
We are looking for help with animal feeding several days per week… it is about a 20 minute commitment – unless, of course, you wish to stay longer to play. It’s a simple feeding of giving grain and hay, along with water, to six goats and one sheep.
We are especially in need during February vacation… Monday and Friday afternoon/evening.
Other times that would be helpful are Monday mornings… anytime from day break to 10:00 AM (sunrise is often spectacular at the farm – what a gift!) and Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Saturday afternoon/evenings – anytime after 4:00 PM.
We frequently have the great fortune to observe stunning moon rises and sunsets during afternoon feeding time.
Contact Connie by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or cell 781-588-4255.
Anybody remember Hooper, the bottle lamb, from the lambs born this spring?
Well, everyone will be glad to hear that Hooper not only won Champion Hampshire Ram but was selected as the overall Grand Champion Ram of Show this past weekend at the Washington County Fair in Richmond, RI.
Congratulations Hooper (and Lynda)!!
Member James writes about his own blog:
Thanks for hosting my students yesterday and talking with them about the work and thought involved in the farm. As you can tell, this was a very engaged group, some of them with more than the usual amount of experience with these issues.
