Lambing at Shepherd’s Manor Creamery
March 8 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
Colleen and Michael Histon are opening up their farm in the midst of lambing season. This is your chance to see Maryland’s first and only sheep-milking dairy farm in person! Join us on Sunday, March 8th to learn how these farmers keep their flock healthy. We’ll take a look at their lambing setup, the vet kit, and discuss some common lambing problems and management techniques. And, of course, we’ll take a look at all the brand new lambs. This event will be followed by a potluck lunch on the farmhouse’s front porch. Please bring a dish to share. Award-winning cheese and soap will be available to purchase day-of.
