As the spring season arrives, so do farm babies. Billings Farm & Museum’s Baby Animal Day introduces the public to the newborn animals including lambs and calves.

Saturday, March 26 at 10 a.m. — WOODSTOCK — Billings Farm & Museum, gateway to Vermont’s rural heritage, will feature Baby Animal Day on Saturday, March 26, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

This is a great event for the whole family, designed to introduce newborn lambs and calves, as well as fully-grown draft horses, Southdown sheep, and Jersey cows. Billings Farm staff will be on hand to discuss the care, diet, and growth of the young livestock, as well as a range of other topics including sustainability, crop diversity, and responsible agriculture. Also offered will be horse-drawn wagon rides around the farm fields and family activities, including craft projects and selecting heirloom seeds to plant at home.
