Baby Animals: Heritage Breeds at the Banke, showcases a variety of heirloom breeds of Barnyard Baby Animals (and their moms) that would have been familiar to earlier generations. The event is a family-friendly opportunity to learn more about domestic livestock typical on coastal northern New England farms from the 17th century to the present day.
Peter Cook curates the event, securing breeders from NH, ME, MA, & NY farms who are experts in heritage animals including lambs, kids, calves, piglets, bunnies, chicks, and ducklings.
The breeders answer visitors’ questions, explaining the developmental needs of the babies, the various aspects of husbandry that are required to raise them, and why they have chosen to preserve these sometimes-endangered domestic animals for future generations. Many farms are family projects enthusiastically supported by multiple generations of caretakers.
