Sheep Shearing Day at the Ranch

Come join us for a day of learning about our rare sheep and the process of going from sheep to shawl!

Watch sheep shearing and herding demonstrations, wool spinning, weaving and rug hooking.  The silent auction to raise money for the maintenance of the farm and care of the rare, endangered livestock animals always has a fascinating array of items donated by our many supporters.

There are a wide array of kid friendly activities such as baby animal time, wet felting, carding wool and more!

May TBD, 2014 1:00pm-6:00pm

 

Vendors: Contact us if you’re interested in vending!

Volunteers: We can always use volunteers.  Looking for volunteers to spin at the Shearing Day.  Come sit, spin, chat with other spinners and answer questions from the public.  A two hour slot in the spinners’ circle gets you a pass and free parking!  Other jobs include set up, tear down, manning our ranch booth, vendor relief, fleece sale booth and more.
Demonstrations: We need people that can volunteer to demonstrate a fiber technique or art or a sheep related husbandry topic.  If you have ideas or can provide a demo, please contact us!
