Every year at Lattes with Lambs, farm favorite Sir Nigel Nicely (a Hog Island sheep) plans something special for event attendees. Over the years he’s celebrated his birthday, received a knighthood, launched a small business, and married the love of his life, the Lady Aster. This year, Nigel has announced his candidacy to run for “Mayor of the Barnyard,” and during Lattes with Lambs he’ll face off with up-and-comer Birdie. Birdie is an American Milking Devon heifer who has charmed and delighted her followers on instagram (@adventuresofbirdthecow) with her adventures in Piscataway Park.
During this year’s event, Nigel and Birdie will take to the mainstage to debate the issues most important to their barnyard buddies, and YOU will help us elect a new mayor by casting your vote. Follow along with the Accokeek Foundation on social media to hear messages from the candidates leading up to election day and show your support for Nigel and Birdie by purchasing some of their merch. A percentage of every shirt sold supports the Accokeek Foundation’s Heritage Breed Livestock Conservation program.
