Shearing Day - Feb. 26, 2011

Can't seem to squeeze in blogging right now, so I'll just put up a re-run advertising our upcoming shearing day.

Shearing Day Open House 9 a.m. to noon
Shady Side Farm will host our Annual Shearing Day on Saturday, February 26th from 9 a.m - noon (come and go as you wish.) We will be shearing our Polypay sheep that day, and our open house is geared toward folks who want to see shearing on a working farm and learn more about wool production.
Fiber artists will demonstrate their work, and wool products (roving, yarn, etc.) will be available to purchase in our little on-farm shop.
The open house is suitable for families and folks of all ages, though very small children sometimes are bothered by the noise and smells of a sheep barn. Wear old clothing and dress warmly. We shear in a barn. :)

Shearing Day Raw Fleece Sale 1 to 3 p.m.
In the afternoon, from 1 - 3 p.m., we will be selling fresh raw Polypay fleeces. Our shearing day special is $4.00/lb., whole, skirted, uncoated fleeces only. Contact us ahead of time with an approximate number of fleeces you’d like us to set aside for you during the morning, or take your chances that you’ll like what we’re taking off in the afternoon. The average fleece weighs 6# or so.
Absolutely no fleeces will be sold during the morning. We want to concentrate on the guests that come for our Shearing Day Open House in the morning.
Also, please respect our noon - 1:00 lunch break.
