Please join us as we celebrate the return of the growing season!

Meet and learn about calves, goats, chickens and roosters.
Meet a beekeeper and view the industrious bees that pollinate our flowers and inhabit our observation hive. Enjoy toe-tapping fiddle music and a delicious lunch, while you try your hand at some natural crafts like fleece creatures, May baskets, and more.
