NEW! Worth the Trip Series: Spring at Drumlin Farm and Woolapalooza
Chickens and ponies and lambs! Oh my! Nothing says spring like a trip to the farm to visit the newest and cutest members.
Drumlin farm is one of our favorite destinations even though it is a tad bit outside central MA. With 206 acres of land, Drumlin Farm is a great Audubon property for a nature walk or hike. They have easy to follow trails although I would be wary of doing their nature walk trails with strollers in the muddy spring months (.5 miles of trails are marked as universally accessible).
What is unique about the farm though is that this property also operates as a working farm and a wildlife sanctuary. Kids can watch the pigs, sheep, goats, chickens, and cows in the farmyard; see how crops are sustainably grown; walk the trails to observe plants and animals in their native settings; and observe resident owls, a fox, and deer in the native wildlife exhibit.
Right now, you can visit to see their lambs and their pictures online are super cute. They have their annual Woolapalooza on March 25. You can visit with the spring babies, attend sheep shearing demonstrations, eat a fresh lunch with Drumlin Farm vegetables and meats and other hands on activities geared to the whole family.
This is definitely a worth the trip spot! If you can’t make it to Woolapalooza, definitely put it on your spring to-do list (maybe April vacation week!).
