Family Program
Special Event
Location: McClure Center for Education, Farm Barn
Fee: $5/person, cash or checks only

Join us any time between 10:00AM and 1:00PM to celebrate sheep and all that they provide us.

Watch a sheep get its yearly haircut! After the sheep is shorn, you’ll have the opportunity to skirt, wash, and card its fleece—a process in which wool becomes ready to be turned into warm, cozy clothing and blankets. We’ll be spinning wool into yarn bracelets, felting, and a few mother sheep and their lambs will be visiting the Children’s Farmyard area for you to meet!
