“I brought my youngest child to the farm for Sheep to Shawl last weekend and we both absolutely loved it!  What a well-organized, educational, tasty (I think we had some of everything that was for sale!), and fun event.   My son’s assortment of pieces of wool he worked on is a special treasure to him now.” – Sheep to Shawl Fair Attendee 2014
