Bass River students take field trip to Taylor-Bray Farm
October 28, 2021
Latham School’s Bass River classroom visited Taylor-Bray Farm in Yarmouth Port on October 18th. It was a nice sunny brisk day – just look at those happy faces that got to enjoy a day off from schoolwork but still learn all about the farm animals. Fun facts and photo captions:
Amazing Facts About the Yak
Most yaks are domesticated, although there is also a small, vulnerable wild yak population.
Yaks are herd animals. Herds can contain several hundred individuals, although they are often much smaller.
The herds consist primarily of females and their young, with a smaller number of adult males.
A great deal of their time is spent grazing on mountain plains, eating grass, herbs, and wildflowers.
The students had fun feeding grain to the goats!
What do you call a goat that swims really fast?
“A motor goat”.
Five Surprising Facts about Chickens
Hens communicate with their chicks while they’re still inside their eggs! …
Chickens have a great memory for faces! …
Chickens are actually omnivores, not herbivores. …
Some research suggests that chickens are just as clever as human toddlers. …
Chickens tend to their eggs carefully.
Students really got a kick out of the chickens!
One pound of wool can make up to 10 miles of yarn. A sheep, depending on the breed, can produce between two and 30 pounds of wool a year, so do the math.

Editor’s Note: Taylor-Bray Farm is a favorite spot for so many of us at Latham. We have fond memories of our Donkey Wedding fundraiser held there in 2019 (Donkeys-For-Good: A perfect day for our magnificent Donkey Wedding – Latham Centers). We encourage you to go visit this special place on the bay side of Yarmouth, off Route 6A. “Open dawn to dusk.”
