Sheep & Wool Day (Virtual)
Saturday, April 25th | Online via Facebook, Instagram & Zoom!
We won’t be able to have visitors on the farm this year for Sheep & Wool Day but we will be bringing the farm to YOU with a virtual version of one of our favorite community events! We’ll be posting several videos on Facebook and Instagram throughout the day including sheep visits, shearing, and more! We will also be doing a live sheep shearing with a Q&A on anything sheep & wool related, as well as several craft demos via Zoom. We’ll end the day with a virtual Knit-a-Long! Bring whatever project you’re working on and we’ll hang out on Zoom!
The tentative schedule is posted below along with where you’ll be able to follow along!
