Spring is the "new" time of year. The plants are budding and sprouting. Bees are buzzing and collecting pollen and nectar, and as a result, flowers are everywhere. Hens are getting into their "Easter Egging" prime. There may even be some babies running around with their mothers! The Woolly Egg Ranch is offering their annual Spring tour, and giving us the opportunity to see their animals, birds, bees and garden. Spring may seem wet and cold sometimes, but it’s the busiest time of the year on a farm. So many things starting anew for the year.
The tour is an interactive walk through an actual working farm. Woolly Egg is a "green ranch", which produces their own electricity, fuel for their cars, catches rainwater, and is able to produce over a ton of food a year, right here in Tam Valley. Bring your cameras and your questions about "self sufficiency" in a suburban setting.
Remember to wear solid shoes or boots as there are lots of animals around and most are not housebroken! Also bring a hat for sun cover, a jacket for the wind and if it’s raining, bring an umbrella. Kids must be under adult supervision at all times. Strollers and bikes can be parked at the house, but can’t be used in the pasture. Please tell us about any plant, insect, or animal allergies you may have.
Reservations are recommended so we can plan ahead. Contact Carol at the TCSD (415-388-6393) or the ranch at firstname.lastname@example.org.
After the tour, farm fresh eggs and other products will be available for purchase.
