DANBURY, Conn. -- Stew Leonard’s Little Farm locations in Danbury and Norwalk will open for the season on Saturday, April 29.
And that means greeting some new spring arrivals.
The birth of two baby cows, two baby goats and two baby sheep are planned for 9 to l0 a.m. in Norwalk (100 Westport Ave., 203-847-7214) and 2 to 3 p.m. in Danbury (99 Federal Rd., 203-790-8030).
To honor the newborns, Stew’s Little Farms are each hosting celebrations that include snacks, balloons, and special appearances by Clover the Cow, Daphne Duck and Cynthia Chick.
In anticipation of the blessed event, kids ages four to 10 are invited to enter the “Name Our Babies” contest. Parents can pick up an entry form at customer service at the Norwalk store starting Wednesday, April 12 and can submit their children’s recommended animal names in the suggestion box.
The contest ends Sunday, April 23, and winners will be notified by phone later that week.
At the Danbury store, the “Name Our Babies" contest began April 1 and will run through Thursday, April 20, with winners being notified by phone on April 22.
The winners of each store’s contest will receive a $25 gift card to Toys "R" Us and will also have their picture taken with the animal they named.
Kids of all ages are welcome to attend the Little Farm and observe the new arrivals, but the contest is limited to those ages 4 to 10.
