Goatsbeard Farm has hosted La Petite Ecole, a local French Immersion School, each spring for the past ten years. It is hard to believe, but we were reminded that the visitors were joined that first year by three year old Peter, our son who is now nearly fourteen!
Children and teachers from the school arrived the morning of April 24, a beautiful but cloudy spring day. Parents accompanied the students, and all watched as older goats were milked and younger kids frolicked in the barn. As a snack, the young students were offered fresh fruit to pair with Goatsbeard Farm fresh cheese spread on slices of baguette (very French!).
