This week has been an exciting week in the barnyard. Indeed, we’ve welcomed not 1, not 2, but 3 lovely lambs to the heritage Hog Island flock. After birth, each mama ewe and their babies are set up with heat lamps and a cozy stall where they can rest in the barn’s Maternity Ward until they can rejoin the flock. One new lamb has rejoined the flock in the barnyard, where he is frolicking and playing with the ewes quite well. The remaining newborns are expected to rejoin the flock sometime in the next week. Come by to see them and the other new additions that should be here soon.
The Livestock crew are very happy to announce…
It’s a Boy!

First thing Monday morning, the farm’s first lamb of the season was born–a bouncing baby boy weighing in at 7 pounds at birth. A group of volunteers from Brandeis University in Massachusetts who helped around the farm last week, were given the honor to name this bundle of joy. His proud parents are Mama Cass and Mick.

On Thursday, we welcomed the first set of twins for the season–a precious baby girl who weighed in at 8 pounds at birth and a bouncing baby boy, weighing 6 pounds at birth. We asked our friends on Facebook to help come up with names for these bundles of wool. (There were so many to choose from it was hard to decide on just one. Good thing they’re twins!) Their proud parents are Grace and Bob Marley.
