Thank you to all who stopped by our booth at the Wild Arts Walk at Creamer's Field this past weekend! Susan had a wonderful time demonstrating spinning and talking with folks about our programs, especially our summer camps. She also enjoyed participating in the Artist Challenge, where artists had ONE hour to start and finish an art piece. Susan spun an extravagant skein of yarn using a variety of techniques. Great job to all the participants!

Our newest goat, Ella, is now the mother of two kids! A female named Siren and a male named Satyr. They were born the morning of Thursday, June 4th. These little ones were frolicking in the barn yard as I walked to the office today. It is amazing to watch as they are just 4 days old!

We have been very fortunate this year with a dry warm May. The greenhouse is slowly being emptied as we get the transplants into the fields - broccoli, lettuce, onions and more. Salad green, peas, radishes and carrots have been direct seeded and are well on their way to getting established. Soon the fields will be green, green, green! We look forward to an abundant harvest.

Now that school is out, our Spring Field Trip Season has ended. We had 570 students from 16 different schools/groups come up to farm during 23 field trips. They experienced Spring/Life on the Farm, Win-Win with Wool or Life in the Pond. A HUGE thanks goes out to our 13 docents who donated a total of 116 hours of their time for these field trips. We are looking forward to our Summer Field Trips and Summer Camps!

Our flock is increasing! A Capella gave birth to two lambs on Mother’s Day, May 10th. The girl was named Phoenix and the boy, Goblin. Qwali gave birth on May 16th to a little girl named Harpie. One other of our sheep is due any day so we are looking forward to the pitter patter of a few more little hooves. Our newest goat, Ella, is also pregnant and due in early June. This arrival is greatly anticipated since along with a new kid(s) comes fresh goat milk!
