Spend the morning learning about wool and meeting the animals on the farm. During the introduction you will get to see a spinning demonstration. The sheep on the farm are a big part of what we do and with their wool we create roving, yarn and have classes to learn to spin, along with other fiber arts. Sheep aren’t our only animals here. You will meet the lovely chickens, Bell our beautiful Jersey cow, and Trinka the goat. In the barn classroom if we still have some babies you will get to hold a few lambs. After we will feed the sheep and take a stroll through the pastures. We will end with a walk around the pond. There have been a few turtles spotted and you might even be able to find some tadpoles. Feel free to bring food and enjoy a picnic lunch by the pond.
Gates open at 10am, please arrive on time. The farm closes at 1:30pm. It is a working farm so we suggest shoes and clothing you don’t mind getting dirty.

Fleece Sale | Saturday, April 27th | 1:30 – 3:30pm
Need some wool? Join us for an afternoon of fleeces. For years we have been working with local shearer John Sanchez. Not only does he shear our sheep, but on other local farms and he has many fleeces for sale. We thought it would be wonderful to bring it all together and offer an afternoon for people to purchase a local fleece.
Free to the public.
