Some wonderful news for animal lovers courtesy of Hancock Shaker Village's website:

Baby lambs, calves, chicks, and kids—and piglets coming soon—are waiting to meet you in newly built outdoor enclosures. Get up close to visit them (but stay a safe social distance of two sheep apart!) and get familiar with how the animals are cared for. You’ll probably see Farmer Billy and Allie, the livestock manager, who will answer your questions and make sure you have a fun visit.

Hancock Shaker Village would like to remind everyone that pre-purchased timed tickets are required for all visitors and that only outdoor spaces are open for now. All buildings, including the Round Stone Barn and Dairy El, will be closed until at least early July.

For much more information, including times and days of the week they're open during Phase 1, prices, how to pre-purchase your tickets, plus social and safety guidelines, visit their website here.
