Shearing Day – April 1, 2017

Join us April 1st (nope this is not an April Fools joke).  This year we will have seventeen sheep to shear. This will give us a full day of shearing, fleece skirting and preparing the ewes for lambing.

Come join us, watch the sheep being sheared, learn how to skirt a fleece and maybe find a favorite to take home.

Picnic area available, bring a lunch. Be sure to dress for mud and cold. Out of respect for Marcus, our Amish shearer, we ask that no photos be taken of him shearing. We also ask that you do not bring your dog with you.

Sheep School 101

Vets routinely describe sheep as animals born looking for a place to die. But sheep raising does not have to be quite this dire and grim.

Spend a day with us and our sheep learning how we keep a happy and healthy flock. Prepare for lambing, vaccinations, deworming, feeding, lamb and ewe care.

Cost to attend is $30 and includes lunch. In order to provide the best learning environment we are limiting the class size to about six, so be sure to register early to make sure you get a spot. Registration is due before April 15. We also ask that you do not bring dogs.
