A Visit from Silk Tree Farm

Earlier this week, our friends at Silk Tree Farm visited the Brownell Library to discuss their work preserving heritage breed animals. Patrons got to hear about the local farm’s focus on sustainability and their dedication to nurturing happy, pasture-raised animals.

Silk Tree Farm had a selection of natural goods fresh off the farm, and even brought along some of their furry friends, giving patrons an up-close look at the animals that inhabit the farm.

Silk Tree Farm is located at 64 Pottersville Road in Little Compton, RI. You can learn more about the farm by visiting their website: www.silktreefarm.com
