“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

*PLEASE DO NOT BRING YOUR DOG TO THE FARM*
We have dogs on the farm, whose purpose is to protect the farm from other animals. For the safety of the children who visit, we ask that you leave your animals at home. There is rarely adequate shade for you to leave your animal in the car while on site.
*If you need your service dog to accompany you to our site, please contact us in advance and have your service dog clearly marked. We will do our best to prepare for your animal’s visit and accommodate your needs for a service animal.
