Sign of Spring: Govin’s Farm prepares for opening day this weekend

Menomonie (WQOW) — A local farm is making some changes, thanks to the muddy mess from all of the melting snow.

Govin’s Farm in Menomonie is ready for their spring opening day this weekend.

Owner John Govin said that they prepared for the yearly flood of visitors by cleaning and painting the barns extensively as well as welcoming newborn lambs, goats and piglets throughout the week.

Govin said that the past winter caused a few setbacks for them, including figuring out how customers will be able to get around the grounds.

“We’re going to have a shuttle bus because the weather is the way it is, Govin said. “We have to park the cars on the road. The customers that have been here in the past know that it can be a long walk. This year we’re going to have a shuttle service for you. So, we’ll be able to drop you off very near the barns so you won’t have to walk as far to get in.”

Govin said that it had been a really long and cold winter, and because of that they’re expecting it to be the best opening yet with a big turnout.

The farm opens Saturday, March 23 at 9:00 a.m.
