RESTORE RED BARN: A SAFE, DRY SPACE FOR HAY, ANIMALS, AND VISitors
Roof, beam, and hay loft floor repairs for Red Barn will return the 100-year-old structure to its position as a favorite spot for the 500-1,000 children who visit the farm annually, chatting with the chickens, peeking in at the piglets, or experiencing a sheep shearing.
