Save the Date: ShineOnCass Animal Baby Shower & PJ Party Canceled

May 5 @ 10:00 am - May 6 @ 2:00 pm

What’s more fun than a pajama party for kids? Seeing baby goat KIDS in theirs! Yes! ShineOnCass Animal Baby Shower at Hart-to-Hart Farm is back with our famous PJ party!  Hart-to-Hart Farm & Education Center and the ShineOnCass Foundation organize an annual ShineOnCass Animal Baby Shower at the  farm–open and free to the community!

Hundreds of children have visited the farm each spring to welcome newborn farm animals and learn about the workings of a real farm! Events have included animal petting, egg hunts, face painting, crafts, games, and photos with the babies!  Watch a video clip of one of our past egg hunts! 
Join us for Goat Yoga, simulated cow milking, fetching eggs in the coop, spinning lamb’s wood, and cuddling newborn babies! Admission is free with a food or pet item “baby shower gift” to be shared with our local animal shelter. We will collect donations at the shower and deliver to Humane Society Waterville Area in memory of Cass who was a devoted volunteer !

Our farm offers a variety of educational programs for children, adults and families. Cassidy was a long-time summer camper there (7 years!) In 2015,  the community helped build Cassidy’s Kitchen –– an outdoor, three-season kitchen for children and adults attending educational programs. 


Watch the TV News stories on WABIWGME Fox 23 and WVII Fox 22.                             
Read about the event in Turner Publishing.

Come join the fun!​ Big smiles on dozens of “pajamaed kids” will flood Hart-to-Hart Farm on May 5th to love the newborn animals, fetch eggs, braid lambs’ wool, and stretch out for goat yoga!  Register now for one of two sessions, 10 to 11:30 am and 12:30 to 2pm. Limited space, so register your child early!

Session 1: 10-11:30am  Session 2: 12:30 – 2pm




With great disappointment, the ShineOnCass Animal Baby Shower & PJ Party planned for May 5th has been canceled.

Our friends at Hart-to-Hart Farm & Education Center are working tirelessly to rebuild after the devastating windstorm that destroyed their barns and displaced all their dairy cows. The cleanup has taken longer than they anticipated. While they had great hope to have the property ready for our event, weather and other factors have delayed work in removing the debris.

In the interest of safety for all attending a large event such as ours, and to allow the Hartkopfs time to finish the work of rebuilding the farm so that their cows can come back home soon, we unfortunately must cancel this year’s Animal Baby Shower & PJ Party. We continue to make joyfulness and safety top priorities at this event and will return next year to welcome the new babies in Spring 2025!

Donations of pet food and other items (shower gifts) in memory of Cassidy will still be gratefully accepted at Humane Society Waterville Area. Here’s a list of urgent need items:
-Purina One dry dog food
-Purina Cat Naturals dry food
-Any wet cat food
-Cedar Litter Pellets
-Laundry Detergent
-Dog Treats
-Hard Chew dog toys
-Cat scratchers

Special thanks to our “All Things Cass” sponsors: Golden Pond Wealth Management and Hammond Lumber Company.

We appreciate your understanding, and your continued support of the Hartkopf family and the rebuild of our beloved farm.
We can’t wait “Til the Cows Come Home” soon! Hmmm….maybe there’s a party theme there!?
