Spring Fling

Saturday, April 26, 10am to 4pm

The chicks are peeping, the lambs are bleating and the kids (of the goat kind) are just "udderly" adorable! It's baby season at Slide Ranch!

Bring your little lambs to meet our little lambs at our annual Spring Fling on Saturday, April 26 from 10am - 4pm, here at Slide Ranch near Muir Beach.

Learn to make cheese and bread, watch sheep shearing, milk goats, explore tide pools, get creative with wool and nature crafts, join a guided coastal hike and much more! 

Bring a blanket, pack a picnic and enjoy a bounty of hands-on family-friendly farm and craft activities at  our Spring Fling!
