Fifth graders from the Sustainability Academy in Burlington, VT held their graduation celebration at the Farm last week, including a hike through the forest, and meeting chickens and sheep! The students participated in Cultivating Pathways to Sustainability throughout the school year, focusing on the theme of working across differences. Congrats, graduates!

Our Nubian goat, YaYa, gave birth to two kids yesterday afternoon: one boy, one girl, both Nubian/Alpine crosses. Both the kids and mom are doing well! Children's Farmyard staff will be bottle feeding the kids with visitors daily.
The ospreys are nesting and raising their young on the campus once again! @raptorsinvt caught sight of an intruding osprey competing for the nest space. There was no violent confrontation, as the interlopers eventually flew off, but this isn't always the case. 🦅
