Eeeek! Springtime means baby animals! Twin lambs, newly hatched chicks and baby pigs are among the dozens of new faces you will find at Howell Living History Farm these days, as well as a few colonies of bees.

On Saturday, March 28, 2015, visitors to the 130-acre working farm will be able to meet these animals up close during the farm’s annual Lambing Day.

Throughout the day, farmers will be present in the sheep barn, henhouse and pigpen to introduce visitors to babies born this spring. Visitors to the main barn will be able to meet the farm’s workhorses and oxen. Animal visiting hours are 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Howell Farm is maintained and operated by the Mercer County Park Commission. It is located on Valley Road, just off Route 29, two miles south of Lambertville (GPS address: 70 Woodens Lane, Lambertville, NJ 08530). Visiting hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday.

For more information about the farm, call (609) 737-3299 or visit www.mercercountyparks.org or www.howellfarm.org.
