Westport Chicken Coop Tour

Join Wakeman Town Farm on Saturday, May 25th June 1, for a lively tour of Westport homes whose owners keep backyard flocks of chickens!


The morning begins with a special visit to Wakeman Town Farm by Lauren Scheuer, illustrator for American Girl and the author of her newly published novel, Once Upon a Flock. Lauren will treat guests to a free chicken keeping workshop and will be available to sign copies of her novel which will be for sale throughout the day.

Then, grab a map, some refreshments, and be on your way for a self-guided tour through Westport to view some of our town’s most charming coops and chicken keepers! Learn everything you’ve always wanted to know about backyard chicken keeping and discover a diversity of feathered menageries!
