Colonial Pennsylvania Plantation: Sheep Shearing

May 11

Phone: 610.566.1725

Come to the Plantation and see three of our rare breed sheep lose their fleece. We will have Margaret Quinn, a master shearer, explain how to shear and then demonstrate by using hand shears. We will also explain how to care for sheep, what they eat, and the advantages of various breeds. Visitors will have an opportunity to card wool. There will also be a chance to learn about our other farm animals including our horses, cow, steers, chickens, pigs and turkeys. There will be hearth cooking, garden, farm, and house tours.
