Come out and enjoy a fun group ride to Drumlin Farm — We’re going to check out a bunch of little baby sheep and see their moms get sheared at the WOOLAPALOOZA festival!
Woolapalooza: “It’s a sure sign of spring—time to shear the sheep! Come join the fun on March 31, 2012, from 10am to 4pm, at Woolapalooza. Bask in the beauty of Mass Audubon’s Drumlin Farm, the perfect setting to delight in all things sheep. Festival highlights include Drumlin Farm’s new spring babies, sheep shearing and sheepherding demonstrations, hands-on activities for all ages, and all natural, locally grown and harvested Drumlin Farm food. Local fiber artisans will offer demonstrations and sell their handmade products. Follow the “Sheep-to-Sweater Interpretive Trail” to learn how fleece on a sheep becomes the warm woolen sweater you wear.”
That sounds AWESOME! herding demos, “new spring babies”, wool artisans and farm fresh food!
