It’s Shearing Day at the farm. Come see our Olde English Babydoll sheep get sheared for the season. It is a sure sign of spring! The day will be filled with lots of fun demonstrations and activities for all ages.

Take a look at what is happening continuously throughout the day…

Sheep Shearing Demonstrations
 Jeff Jordon our sheep shearer will be demonstrating how we harvest the wool from the sheep. Jeff is more than willing to answer any questions you may have about the process.

Spinning
Local spinners will demonstrate how they turn the wool from the sheep into yarn. Learn about felting and other techniques used for making wool products. There will be handmade items for sale the day of your visit too!

Candia Clovers
Our local 4H Club Candia Clovers will be conducting a presentation on “WOOL”. This is a great opportunity to learn all about wool from start to finish. Be sure to ask lots of questions.
11am, 12pm 1pm & 2pm.

Wool Craft
Candia Clovers will be doing craft projects with the kids using wool from the sheep.

Nesting Balls

The kids from the Candia Clovers will be offering completed nesting balls for purchase or for a small fee your children and create their own.

Visit with our animals and see all the new babies born at the farm this spring. Take a ride on our horse-drawn wagon and the tractor train. The ponies are ready to give your little equine lovers a pony ride, too. It will be a great day to have some fun outside after this long winter.
