Animals and Activities at The Farm Living Museum in Door County, WI
FRIENDLY GOAT KIDS, LAMBS AND PIGLETS greet visitors in the barnyard. Bottles of milk are available for guests to feed these eager little charmers. Milk Bottles and corn for feeding the animals is available in the milk house. The older animals love the corn, and of course, the babies love the bottles. Cuddle a kitten, moo at a cow or pick up a piglet and hear him squeal.
The animals are also fed hay and other animal feed, mixed to keep them healthy. When the young animals are full, there are more to bring out.
