Baby Animals on the Shaker Farm
May 5 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 11:00 am on Sunday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, repeating until May 9, 2021
Hancock Shaker Village opens its 2021 season on April 17 with the annual Baby Animals on the Shaker Farm, now in its 17th year. Visitors can meet the new calves, piglets, chicks, lambs and kids in and around the Round Stone Barn and tour the historic village.
A perennial three-week celebration of new life on the farm, Baby Animals (April 17 – May 9) signals the coming of spring for many in the Berkshires. The animals raised at the Village include modern as well as heritage breeds popular in the 1700s and 1800s.
Baby Animals will run from April 17 to May 9, Tuesday through Sunday, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Mondays will become Members Only Days on April 19, April 26, and May 3. The village will also hold tours from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. daily, held when the barn is not open to the general public; they are by reservation only, and for up to eight people.
These tours have been modified to adhere to CDC guidelines for the safety of guests and animals. All programs and audience sizes will be contingent on capacity regulations in connection with official recommendations from the Massachusetts Governor’s Office and CDC.
Hancock Shaker Village opens seven days a week beginning May 10
