June Jamboree


June JamboreeThis event is so popular we've made it two days long. Please join us on June 12th and 13th for fabulously inventive food by The Regal Vegan, grilled goodies, loads of musicians such as Elizabeth Mitchell, a performance by Arm of the Sea Puppet Theater, plenty of kid-friendly activities and, of course, time to cavort with the chickens, play with the pigs, and generally kvell at all the cool rescued critters. All the details are still being ironed out but check our website soon.

Even the car-challenged can come, as the Adirondack Trailways bus will drop you off right at the farm.
