Cassie Hudson and Jill Szwed teamed up to visit 4 J’s Farm in Averill Park to meet some of their new spring arrivals.

AVERILL PARK, N.Y. (NEWS10) — Nothing says springtime quite like the arrival of baby farm animals! This weekend, 4 J’s Farm in Averill Park is hosting a free event for the community to meet, pet, and hold their baby animals.

You will find a farm full of personality located on 4 High Meadow Road! Owner Jodi Pasinello started their farm family in 2013 with just a couple of goats, and over time added to their starting lineup.

Bunnies, chicks, pigs, lambs, goats, two dogs, and a turkey named Tom are just a few of the animals that call the farm home.

Before the pandemic, Pasinello operated a petting zoo but that was quickly put on pause when the pandemic hit. Because animals are her therapy, she decided she needed another way to share them with others.

They hosted the first “Baby Animal Day” on the farm and it was a success! More than 300 people showed up to meet, pet, and hold the animals. They even invited vendors to the property to provide food and refreshments during the event.

The second annual “Baby Animal Day” at 4 J’s Farm will take place on Sunday, April 10 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. (Rain Date), and we’re told the Easter Bunny is making an appearance! For more details about the event, visit their website.
