Come and visit a small scale sheep farm. Pet the sheep, learn about animal management, permaculture practices like rotational grazing, using chickens to make compost, and how to make biochar. See the various methods of vegetable gardening and the benefits of animal compost. Learn about taking wool from fleece to yarn. There will be spinning demos, yarn and wool items for sale as well as other farm produce. You can even try your hand at carding wool and making felt!
Join us on August 18th or 19th when more than 100 farms, ranches and ag-tourism operators open their gates and invite visitors to share in local stories, see on-farm demonstrations and purchase locally grown and produced products.
