Berkshire Shepherd's Hut
I drove up to work this morning at the Kellogg Center and noticed a new addition to our grounds - a moveable sheepherder's shack! Our neighbor, farmer J. Peter Maggio of Mayflower Farm, has been grazing sheep on the fields here and needed a way to occasionally keep watch o'er the flock by night. This tastefully done structure allows him to spend some quality time with the critters while keeping predators at bay. The shack, constructed of mostly locally sourced lumber, is on loan from Berkshire Shepherd Huts of Sheffield, MA and will be around for a week or two.
