Around this time each year the National Colonial Farm welcomes new Hog Island Lambs and Milking Devon calves. To mark the occasion and share these adorable frolicking friends with the community; the farms hosts Lattes With Lambs every spring. This event offers a great opportunity to welcome the new babies, ask questions and learn all about the farm. If you haven’t been to Lattes With Lambs before, you should definitely attend this year. I know I won’t be missing it; Lattes With Lambs is a family favorite of ours.
DID YOU KNOW
There are fewer than 200 nationally registered Hog Island sheep and Milking Devon cattle in the U.S. The Accokeek Foundation works to increase awareness about these special breeds of endangered domesticated livestock by promoting and preserving heritage breeds through a managed breeding program, demonstration, and education. Proceeds from Lattes with Lambs support the Accokeek Foundation’s Heritage Breed Livestock Conservation program.
