Bluefaced Leicester Fleeces

We had a great shearing day this year. We did something new and had an open house with sheep shearing, baby lambs to feed, and our new shop building that will open later this year was on display. We had our new lending library available and are adding new books as we find them. Our latest treasures are cookbooks where you can try out recipes and see if you like them before you buy the book.
