August 7 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Location: Hedgebrook Farms, 690 Shady Elm Rd Winchester, VA (follow signs to the Herd’s Inn on the farm)
We’ll watch a short documentary on farm animal welfare, followed by an extensive tour of Hedgebrook’s animal facilities and opportunities to meet the animals. Get up close and personal with Jersey cows, heirloom sheep, peacocks and water buffaloes! Farmer Kitty Hockman-Nicholas will explain what the farm does to meet Animal Welfare Approved criteria, and why this certification is so important for the animals and farm consumers.
