Our September 30 shearing day was a huge hit! Keep your eye on this space for our spring shearing date, to be determined! And sign up for our newsletter to stay in the know!

Join us as Emily Chamelin Hickman, our amazing professional shearer, takes the wool off our Leicester Longwools (averaging six minutes flat!). Help skirt the fleeces (prepare them for spinning), visit with the horses and goats, and take home a lock or two of wool for yourself.

 

We’re all accustomed to buying our sweaters, blankets, and rugs at a box store, or online—without ever thinking about where those fibers come from. Deepen your understanding of the real infrastructure undergirding that wool sweater or afghan, and get a clearer view of what small family farms have to offer.

 

Drinks and snacks available for purchase on site! Or, make an event of your visit, and book a luxurious Afternoon Tea at our Bed & Breakfast to follow the shearing adventure.

 

Note: Emily is FAST! We recommend coming early!

Just show up--or RSVP to thefarmer@historicpeacehill.com, and take home a free miniball of wool!
