Sunday at the Sanctuary – Pasture Animals – Wild and Wooly!
March 22 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Did you know that 200 years ago over 70% of Connecticut was farm and pastureland? Those farmers created 25,000 miles of stone walls, known as “sheep keepers”, clearing their fields of ancient glacier rock to raise crops, sheep, cows, and other “fruits of the pasture”. Come and learn of the historical importance of these stone walls and the pasture lands that they created from hands-on spinning demonstrations, butter churning, and live ambassador animals.
