Baby Animals: Heritage Breeds at the Bank

Strawbery Banke Museum
14 Hancock Street
Portsmouth, NH 03801
United States

April 21-29

Peter Cook, who assists with the coordination of animals for the museum’s NH Fall Festival, is curating the event, securing breeders from NH, Maine and MA farms who are expert in heritage animals including lambs, kids, calves, piglets, bunnies, chicks and ducklings. The participants 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.
