Come See Me Sheared During Wool Days!

The museum will shear sheep using traditional hand shears at 10:00 am and 2:00 pm at either the English farm yard or at the 1850 American farm barn yard.  There is a good chance we will shear a third sheep at 11:00 am on most days.

Visitors will have the opportunity to try many activities during Wool Days such as:

  • Weaving on the Irish farm
  • Carding and spinning wool on the 1820’s American farm
  • Sorting and scouring wool at the English farm
  • Processing flax on the German farm
  • Touching flax, wool, and of course sheep
