The harbinger of spring…sheep shearing day! The Farm’s resident sheep will be hand-shorn at this event, just as they would have been so many years ago. The Island Farm herd is made up of two different sheep breeds: four Merino and two Romney. In addition to hand-shearing, visitors can expect to watch the entire process unfold, from washing wool, spinning yarn and weaving cloth.
