Hancock Shaker Village to Live Stream Baby Animals
PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Hancock Shaker Village announces plans to stream live on Facebook this Sunday, April 12, at 1 p.m.
Bill Mangiardi, director of farm and facilities, will lead a virtual tour of the Round Stone Barn, the iconic centerpiece of the village's campus that houses sheep, goats, calves, pigs, chickens and donkeys.
Several animals have recently been born, while others are expected shortly. The Easter Sunday tour will be streamed live to the village's Facebook account and will be posted later in the day to the village's Instagram and YouTube accounts, as well as to the website.
Mangiardi, who has worked at the Village for more than 15 years, will provide a colorful account of the animals and their care as he walks through the pens in the barn.
Hancock Shaker Village was originally slated to open Saturday, April 11 with its popular Baby Animals program, but has pushed the opening back due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The opening is now tentatively scheduled for May 15.
