Hello Primrose Farm Friends! It looks like our chickens are done laying eggs, so our Chicken & Egg drop-in has ended for the season. Our drop-in classes through November are: Feed the Chickens on Mondays and Wednesdays from 10-11am, Feed the Goats on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 1-2pm, Hold Your Horses on first and third Saturdays at 2pm, and Feed the Animals on second and fourth Saturdays at 2pm. All drop-ins are subject to weather, animal cooperation, and staff availability, so if you have your heart set on a class, please call ahead to ensure it is running that day.
