A spring evening in the pasture is simply magical. The cows and sheep are all active, enjoying a final graze before bedding down for the night. The baby lambs and calves are literally frolicking through the pasture. The lambs run together in a huge pack and as they come to a stop, it looks like popcorn popping with a sea of little lambs jumping into the air.
Occasionally a mama ewe runs after them baa-ing, as if to say, “Kids, come back here!” You can’t help but smile.
Saturday, May 28th from 4-8 pm, we would love for you to experience this with us! You are invited to An Evening On the Farm – a time for connection, relaxation, and joy.
The evening will include live music, a meal featuring Jako Farm products, a chance to pet a chick and baby lamb, and dozens of picnic tables scattered around the farm where you can sit and relax.
2. Examine the quality of one food item you buy regularly
4-6 PM // Pet a chick or lamb, take a hayride through the pasture, relax under a shade tree and enjoy live music, climb the silo, play yard games like cornhole or ladder golf – just have fun!
5:30-6:00 PM // JakoPure Meal: Beef or Chicken Tacos
6-8 PM // Stroll through the pasture lanes to see the animals, roast a s’more, enjoy live music, and simply enjoy the beauty of the farm.
The event is free and the meal is by donation.
The evening is an opportunity for connection…with the earth, each other, and the land where your food was raised. Feel free to walk around without shoes on – do some earthing! We strongly believe these connections matter and hope you can join us for this casual, outdoor event.
Please RSVP by May 23rd. No tickets will be handed out, but we need to know how much food to make!

Story from the Farm
Our animals live a low stress, healthy life and are able to have unassisted births in the pasture. We always make sure to keep a close eye on them and occasionally we need to provide assistance. Last week a ewe had given birth to one lamb, but the second lamb was having trouble. Its head was out, but one of its legs was in the wrong position which made it stuck in the birth canal.
The ewe allowed us to catch her and within minutes Daniel was able to reposition the leg that was stuck and the lamb was born.
Even before the mama had licked off all the afterbirth, the little lamb was standing up for the first time and trying to find milk. We’re happy to report that mama and the twins are doing great! The miracle of birth never gets old.
