Visit Shepherd’s Cross for a great family event the last weekend of April!
Walk through the barn and observe the shepherds and shepherdesses shearing. This is the real thing! This is not a speed competition, but the work of a real working shepherd.
Watch as the wool is shorn from the sheep (a simple hair cut!), and is made in to usable products – a shawl or other wool product – right before your eyes – washed, spun, and woven.
Please Note: Even in the event of rain, Woolly Weekend will proceed in the tour barn.
Demonstrations throughout the day on spinning wheels, carding, weaving on looms, felting, drop spindling, picking wool, broomstick lace and much more!
A professional caterer will be offering samples of our 100% natural grass fed lamb meat. We have been practicing sustainable agriculture for many years.

The best time to observe is early in the morning(shearing begins at 10 am), when it is still cool, or later in the evening when the sun goes down. Shearing is hard work and the cooler times are easier on the sheep and the shearer.Come when it is convenient for you. A sheep is shorn, and the process is repeated about every 30 minutes. Spend the day or a simply an hour or two.
Children’s Activities – including wool sheep making, felting, weaving, games & coloring
The Bible Garden will be open for mini-tours – with tour guide every 30 minutes – or as a self guided tour.
