A mother of an adult with autism from Sebastopol reached out to us recently through our website’s contact page and introduced herself. She had read about our intention to start a farm at MCC and said she would be willing to donate some farm animals to help with our grass control. Who are we to refuse? She also invited us to meet her animals in Sebastopol, and she let us know that her sheep had just given birth and there were lambs to meet as well! This called for another field trip for Fiona and Susan in the name of farm research!
Sebastopol is a city in Sonoma County, about 17 miles northwest of Petaluma. Our new friend introduced us to her pigs, alpacas, sheep and lambs. She has been breeding sheep and alpacas to be small and friendly. We can confirm that her animals are indeed small and friendly, and very huggable at that!
