Stark Hollow Farm animals have arrived!!

The Icelandic sheep, Tamworth pigs and layer hens of Stark Hollow Farm have arrived for the summer. The grass was already hip high by the time the animals landed over the Memorial day weekend. The critters are so happy to be here. There are 24 sheep, 4 pigs and 9 chickens right now with a few more layers on the way. Laura & Vanessa, of Stark Hollow Farm in Starksboro are working with HOWL on stewardship of the land to help bring back the fallow pastures. This year we hope to have the sheep graze out the labyrinth so that it may once again be enjoyed by HOWL caretakers and visitors alike.
