Great Brook Farm baby heifer No. 661 is named
Royee is nine years old and his entry was randomly chosen as the winner. This was Royee's first visit to the farm. He will receive a T-shirt from Great Brook Farm Ice Cream stand, along with a Holstein beanie baby.
The most popular name submitted was Milky Way, but Oreo and Chocolate Chip ran close seconds. Other names such as Gateway, Augusta, and Bessie were also favorites. The rest of the names were given to the farmer so maybe your name will come up next time. Baby Maya will now be recognized as one special little girl. After all, to be chosen from over fifteen hundred entries is quite an honor!
The new interpretative center consisting of a large, open pavilion with picnic tables, interpretative office, and public restroom facilities was dedicated and christened with good 'ole country guitar playing and banjo-picking music provided by the Stone House String Band, featuring Alex Demas, an internationally-awarded banjo/fiddle player.
