Sheep Shearing Day and Open House

home page

February 20, 2010 is sheep shearing day at the farm. Visitors are welcome from 9:30 to Noon. You will have the opportunity to learn about how and why sheep are shorn. Handle some raw fleece and see some of the gorgeous blankets made from this fleece. Blankets will be available for purchase this day in Lap size and Queen size. There is no charge for visiting this day, but we will gratefully accept donations to the our Relay For Life team. We are raising money to support the work of the American Cancer Society. I do ask that you email me (see our Contact Us tab) to let me know if you plan to stop by so that I will have a rough head count. So come for a quick visit with the family or stay the whole time, it’s up to you.

The trouble with goats is.....

Animals can't read!

In the photos above, you’ll see our new Nigerian goat buck, Harold, doing what goats do. Standing IN the food to eat it. They can be so challenging to manage sometimes!

The other photo was taken the first weekend of December, (notice the green lawn!) at the Yuletide Festival at Storrowton Village at Eastern States Exposition. I couldn’t resist the picture of the sign with all the animals in the background!

Border Leicester sheep are selected for the quality of their fleece. Both white and naturally colored fleeces are available. Raw fleeces may be purchased by the pound for handspinning. Custom processing into yarn is also available by request.
