Editor's note: Due to the threat of inclement weather, the Living Gift Market at Heifer Village has been postponed to Saturday, December 21. The update has been made below. The flyers were produced before the post was published.

Living Gift Market Season is upon us. This weekend and next, treat yourself and your family to the unique experience of a Living Gift Market at Heifer Farm, Heifer Ranch or Heifer Village. All three Heifer learning centers, you will find animals (great for holiday photo-ops), arts and crafts, and the opportunity to pare down your holiday shopping list with a gift from Heifer International.

Heifer’s living gifts are unsurpassed in quality and their ability to nourish, enrich and empower families around the world. For instance, animals like chickens, pigs, sheep and goats are easy to care for and provide their own gifts of milk, meat and a sustainable source of income.

When you visit a Living Gift Market this year, you’ll meet knowledgeable staff and volunteers. Find out how your animal gift from Heifer International will dramatically improve the lives of families around the world. Imagine your loved one’s reaction when they open your card and learn that they’ve been honored in such a way!

You have two weekends to visit Heifer Farm in Rutland, Mass. Stop by between 11 a.m.-4 p.m. December 7-8 and 14-15.

Heifer Village’s Living Gift Market will take place one day only: Saturday, December 21, from 10 a.m.-3 p.m.

Heifer Ranch will be celebrating living gifts all next weekend: Saturday, December 14, from 5-8 p.m. and Sunday, December 15, from 3-6 p.m.
