Red Gate Farm, Buckland, MA

This is an educational farm and as such it offers quite a few programs. We attended a regular Saturday afternoon event, during which children are taught to feed and water various farm animals. These included sheep, goats, bison, and chickens. They carry the hay, operate the water pump, and reach under hens to retrieve eggs. They also had the special treat of holding lambs, only a few weeks old, in their arms. The program leader, Jen, was really comfortable directing the kids in their tasks and knew our kids' names by the end of the hour.
