Sheep Shearing (5th August)
Sheep Shearing Demonstration at Farmer Palmer's on Monday 5th August. Have you ever seen a sheep being shorn in real life?
See some more

Why should we shear sheep? Shearing is really important so sheep don't overheat in the Summer. A long fleece reduces mobility, tending to become dirty and drag along the ground. Fly Strike is really horrible and our team are on constant watch until sheep shearing is completed. We are very lucky to have local shearer, Chris, coming in to take those heavy wool fleeces off our beautiful sheep. Watch him give them a hair cut! No extra charge, just arrange to visit us and let your little VIP's see farming at work.
