Lambing Day to be Held at Howell Farm

Twin lambs, newly hatched chicks and baby pigs are among the dozens of new faces you will find at Howell Living History Farm this spring, as well as a new colony of bees.

On Saturday, April 1, visitors to the 130-acre working farm will be able to meet these animals from 11am to 3pm 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 the new babies born this spring. Visitors to the main barn will be able to meet the farm’s workhorses and oxen. Parking and admission are free.
