About

Our small family farm practices sustainable agriculture. Sheep and border collies are at the heart of the farm, but diversification is key to our philosophy. We offer lean, healthy, grass-fed lamb, free-range chicken and turkeys, chicken eggs, pastured pork, fleeces, yarn, roving and blankets. We also offer a number of farm related experiences, including farm camps and educational workshops, herding demonstrations and birthday/farm experiences. Starting in 2019 we plan to offer goat yoga and some mindfullness experiences involving various livestock.

Family Fun

  • School Vacation Farm camps
    February and April School Vacation Camps, During school vacation week. 9 am – 3pm
    These weeks are special. The ewes are lambing and the goats are kidding. We have new baby chicks and turkey poults arriving as well as piglets. We always have some other special activities planned for these weeks. Please visit our website for more info. https://littlebrookfarm.com
  • Summer Farm camp
    SUMMER FARM CAMPS will take place during June and July from 9 AM to 3 PM. Dates are on the website!
    Little Brook Farm in Sunderland offers three weeks of farm camp each year. Campers will have the opportunity to learn about agriculture and livestock. There will be lots of hands on experience with goats, sheep, llamas, donkeys, horses, chickens and turkeys. The goal for each week will be to provide kids with the opportunity to learn how to safely handle animals and to foster respect for the animals that we care for. Kids will develop a better understanding of where their meat, milk, eggs and fiber come from, and what sustainable agriculture means. And of course, everyone will have FUN with all the baby animals and both indoor and outdoor activities. Camp is limited to children ages 6 – 13 and space is very limited. For more information please contact Kristen Whittle at 413-665-3802.

Put on some clothing you don’t mind getting a little dirt on and spend an afternoon with family and friends discovering the local farms that grow our food. Keep in mind that harvest times are a little different every year. It’s always a good idea to call ahead to find out what’s available for picking.
