Strawbery Banke welcomes Spring with a showcase of more than a dozen heirloom breeds of Baby Animals (and their moms) that would have been familiar to earlier generations. In addition, a hands-on fiber arts area helps students understand the importance of animals to the livelihood of early New England settlers. Activities include weaving on looms, exploring the Children’s Discovery Center, a hands-on knitting area and of course, viewing a variety of heritage breed farm animals including rabbits, donkeys, poultry, pigs, sheep and goats.
