Llamas, goats, and piglets, oh my…

Whether you want to take your kid to Stamford Museum & Nature Center or you just want to check out all the cute animals, we’ve got a great weekend event to share with you:  Spring on the Farm Festival

Please mommy, can we see the otters and go to Family Farm Friday?

You otter get to SM&NC!

Weekend!  This two day farm and food party goes from 11-3 pm on both May 17 and May 18 and costs $5 for members or $10 for non-members.  Check out all the cute baby animals and your favorite farm friends, too.  You’ll also be able to see the SM&NC sheep get sheared, then see how that wool becomes felt and yarn.  And, there are a whole lot of other things going on too including “llama trekking” (we don’t know what this is, but we SO need to do this), face painting, crafts, live music, and even a plant and herb sale.  Oh, and…what?  Where’s the food?  Pssshhh, you know we won’t leave ya hanging…
