Nurture Lambs during our lambing season, May through early June. We ‘rescue’ lambs who need special care – often the smallest of triplets or quads. They are bottle fed and cuddled and the public is invited to participate, but must reserve a time. The fee is $15/family or carload for a 25 minute time period. More time may be available on weekdays. Time holding a young lamb can be deeply comforting. Please car pool at the ferry to save money, space on the boat, and the environment.
Adopt a foster lamb. Individuals, families or school classes choose to support an individual animal – to name it, and to visit as often as they wish while the lamb is on the farm. This supports the farm’s efforts to take care of its most vulnerable animals. The information about adopting a lamb is available here
