Goat Husbandry and Homesteading–June 2nd
Meet the goats of Hawthorn Farm and hang out with the herd! We invite you to join us for “Goat Husbandry and Homesteading” Wednesday, June 2nd, 7 p.m. virtually via Zoom, as part of the on-going series of Community Education programs presented by the Sammamish Valley Grange in Woodinville.
Alexia Allen and Daniel Kirchhof, of Hawthorn Farm in Woodinville, will share their experiences with the hard-working ladies of the herd, and their adorable babies, as they eat, brush and make delicious milk. Bring your questions as we hang out with the homestead herd.
Feasting together at Hawthorn Farm since 2010, Allen and Kirchhof spent all of 2017 eating only hand-harvested food and continue to develop their Woodinville farm to feed the community great year-round produce. With years of experience between them doing carpentry, animal husbandry, food preserving, and gardening, they find joy in sharing hard-won common sense. Teaching is a passion for them both.
Whether you want to get your goat, or just enjoy some time with these wonderful animals, join us virtually in the goat barn. Everyone is welcome to attend this free program. Please register in advance for this free program; a Zoom link will be provided upon registration.
