We had a wonderful winter at Farm School.   Check out a few highlights from February and March.  One of our favorite highlights include the birth of 3 lambs born on the farm.   The students enjoyed petting a one day old lamb and continuing to check on them each day to see how fast they grow up!

Below we went for a nature hike looking for tracks and stopped to read a book.

The students enjoyed the days where the snow was good enough to make snowmen or forts

On March 1st, this little Peanut was born.  He was the smallest of the lambs so we kept the name, Peanut.

Everyone got to pet Peanut, he was such a good boy for everyone and liked the attention.  They loved feeling how soft he was. IMG_1775

This is our third lamb, named Pickles (the students all gave great suggestion for names).
