Spring is almost here which means the arrival of new kids and of course goat milk! We’ll be starting up our workshops in April with the following dates. All workshops are held here at Kricklewood Farm, which is located at 421 Kitley Line 8 Road, Frankville, K0E 1H0.

Workshops begin at 1 pm and run until about 4 pm. We start with a trip to the barn for a lesson in goat milking and to meet all the other animals. Anyone who would like to try milking is invited to give them a tug! The goats love attention as do our pot-bellied pigs Miss Piggie and Pitou. Rubber boots or old shoes are suggested. After milking the workshop begins, details on each is below. Light refreshments are served and participants will leave with a goodie bag of items from the workshop. Cost is $35 tax included.
