What a beautiful time of year — the flowers are starting to make their entrance, the air is crisp and the sun is warm. To add to the newness of Spring, visit the Baby Animals on the Shaker Farm, just down the road in Pittsfield.
Hancock Shaker Village kicks off its 2013 season with Baby Animals on the Shaker Farm April 13 – May 5. This spring celebration is one of the most exciting times of the year at the Village, when scores of baby lambs, piglets, calves, goats, ducklings, and chicks arrive at the historic Round Stone Barn. Visitors get to meet and greet the baby animals from 10am – 4pm daily. The Discovery Room offers fun Shaker-themed craft activities, including basket weaving, making and decorating seed packets, and weaving on a small loom. Historic buildings in the core of the Village are open for self guided exploration, as well as our hiking trails and expansive gardens.
