A Field Trip to Grace Valley Farms

We enjoyed a visit from a group of school children taking an educational field trip. They came out to learn about farm animals and see the new lambs.  School teachers and a number of parents accompanied the students!

Diana put on a show for the group! She delivered her babies just before the children arrived. Her second lamb was born just seconds before they stepped in the barn.

Diana's twins are Fife (13 lbs. 1 oz.) and Fennel (10 lbs. 11 oz.).

After everyone admired Diana and her twins, the children got to bottle-feed Fiona and Francine.

 Ellie got to feed Fiona her bottle of milk.

 Abby feeding Francine her bottle.

Melody got to feed Francine too.

 Deena wasn't sure she liked all the excitement.

Baby Elias and his mommy came on the field trip too. He was quite intrigued by the lambs.

 Simon got to hold Fido too.

After everyone finished studying the younger lambs in the barn, we moved outside to see the older lambs.

Flora and Fa'Lisa.

 Sally spoke to the children about the lambs and answered any questions they had.

The cows came over to greet our visitors.

 Ginger came over to the fence to enjoy the lovin' from the children.

Thanks for coming out and visiting Grace Valley Farms!  It's a good way to learn about farming and our Nation's food and fiber supply.
