Kevin Ford (America's foremost Blade Shearer!) will once again travel here from Massachusetts to shear our sheep. He'll start shearing a couple of days earlier so that by the 24th all of the fleeces will be available to see and/or purchase.
Joy Moore from Greensboro will be helping and shearing alongside Kevin. Joy has demonstrated blade shearing at our Farm Fest event in September.
This is a wonderful opportunity to see a sheep sheared "up close" - interesting and educational for all ages!
Corriedale- white, moorit (brown, beige), and natural color (gray)
We also will have fleeces from our four alpacas.
Lunch will be "Pot Luck" with our homemade Lamb Chili, homemade soup, and homemade bread--add a sandwich fixin' or dessert to the table--cash donations also accepted to defray the expenses.
THE FARM STORE:
In addition to fleeces, we offer roving (Corriedale, CVM Romeldale, and alpaca), yarn, felt, and sheepskins--all from the farm! Also, needle felting kits and supplies--wool creme to make your skin soft--and a number of handmade items.
From "the Meat Room" - we'll have a full selection of lamb cuts--also pasture-raised chicken, grassfed beef, and free-range eggs!
We accept cash, checks, and credit cards.
This is a Rain or Shine event.
Call (336) 622-1795 with any questions.
