SHEARING DAY 2023
Saturday, March 18th 9am to 3pm
Master Blade Shearer, Kevin Ford, will be welcomed at Rising Meadow Farm once again! He'll be demonstrating the age-old skill of shearing sheep with hand shears - and be ready to answer questions for any potential shearers and fiber enthusiasts.
All fleeces will be available for sale. Some sheep will have been sheared before the 18th and their fleeces will be ready for sale. We'll have some beautiful fleeces from Dorset, Corriedale, and CVM Romeldale background - white, shades of moorit (brown), and shades of gray. Fleeces will be skirted and priced at $10 per lb.
Lunch will be Pot Luck: Lamb Chili (from our Rising Meadow lamb), Corn Chowder, and Homemade Bread are on the menu. We invite you to add a sandwich fixing or dessert to our table! No reservations are necessary. We always eat well!
RISING MEADOW - The Book
Created by award-winning photographer, Houck Medford, his photos are brought to life through poems written by former NC Poet Laureate, Joseph Bathanti. It is a unique portrayal of life on a small sheep farm in North Carolina. The end result is a truly amazing piece.
American Farmland Trust is promoting the book as a way of encouraging donations toward their goal of saving farmland. Their 'NO FARMS, NO FOOD' bumper sticker is well known across the country.

All of us have noticed an increase in prices across the board as costs to raise and process livestock have increased. In spite of that, the quality of our Lamb and Chicken remains the same. Whether on the grill, in the oven, or in a slow cooker we are so proud of the product we can offer you!
Our chickens are raised and processed right here on the farm. They were bred to grow quickly and have a higher meat-to-bone ratio than commercially raised chicken. And they taste better! At present we have a few whole frozen chickens at $6.50/lb. The next chickens will be ready on May 20th. More specific information will be available here by late March. There are some wonderful recipes that we're happy to share!
Call or text Beth Henry (336) 202-8893 with orders or if you have questions.
We will be taking the last lambs to the abattoir soon. All cuts will be available as of February 10th. If you have specific requests, please call and order ahead. We anticipate having meat available for sale on our Shearing Day, March 18th.
Lamb Prices as of February/March 2023
A whole lamb can be ordered and cut to your specifications. They are sold by the hanging weight, not the packaged meat weight. Price is $10/lb hanging weight.
Call (336) 622-1795 with any questions.
