Quiet Valley’s 29th Annual Farm Animal Frolic
Come enjoy baby farm animals, children’s show, games, hands-on activities, refreshments & more.
Two weekends of fun for the entire family as Quiet Valley comes alive with baby farm animals. This is a unique opportunity for children and the young-at-heart to see and touch a variety of baby farm animals. Watch baby chicks hatching from their eggs and feel the soft fur of the baby bunnies. Don’t miss seeing the new lambs with their woolly fleece and the frisky baby goats. The adorable baby piglets with their funny little noses charm everyone. Get to know our workhorses, Gunther and Wilhelm. Meet Janie, our mule.
Children always love the hay jump in the barn, and they can play some of the traditional games enjoyed by past generations. There is a children’s show daily a 1 p.m. The outdoor brick bake oven is in operation both weekends. There is plenty of hearty homemade food and sweet treats for all!
This year’s hands-on theme area will be the Pig Pen where you can learn all sorts of swine lore, pit your brains against Quiet Valley’s version of the learned pig of Norwich and enjoy some crafts and activities that put you in hog heaven.
Everyone will enjoy a ride in the wagon pulled by our Clydesdale draft horses. The wagon ride takes about 20 minutes and takes you down an old railroad bed from the 1800’s to the pond where ice is harvested in the winter. Pony rides are an annual Frolic favorite. Pony and Wagon Rides are an extra charge and are weather permitting.
And don’t miss Sheep Shearing on Saturday, May 20 beginning at 10:30 a.m. and lasting to mid-afternoon. Come see sheep shearer Margaret Quinn use hand blades to shear the fleeces off the Quiet Valley sheep. The wool from the fleeces is used on the farm as it is washed, spun into yarn, dyed and woven into cloth on the cabin loom during the summer.
