Brrr in the Barnyard

Saturday, January 25 @ 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm

Ever wonder how the goats, sheep, and chickens at Blandford survive the long cold winter? Explore livestock adaptations – wool, hair, feathers, and more! Then check out all the farmer modifications to the barns that ensure everyone weathers the winter. Wrap up with a cup of cocoa and a chance to warm up at our barnyard bonfire. Marshmallows will be provided!

COST: $9 Members; $12 Non-Members

NOTE: Program is open to all ages but geared toward families. Children must be accompanied by an adult. Adults and children must register. Program registration includes daily admission. Children 2 and under are free.

LOCATION: Meet at the Blandford Farm. Please note that during the winter months, there are not public bathrooms on the Farm Campus. Participants will have access to the Visitor Center facilities before and after the program though.
