Sheep Shearing Day at the Peter Wentz Farmstead

April 23 @ 10:00 am - 3:30 pm

Visit the Peter Wentz Farmstead for the return of their annual Sheep Shearing Day! There will be two sheep shearing demonstrations at about 11 am and 1 pm. Watch the ewes lose their winter coats as farmers demonstrate 18thcentury methods of shearing sheep. Afterwards, stop by the pasture to meet two new adorable lambs! Then follow the steps “from sheep to sweater” as you visit living historians who will be demonstrating how to card the wool and spin it into thread, how to weave the thread into fabric, and how the fabric is sewn into clothing. Visitors will experience many facets of typical springtime life on a colonial farm. Additionally, there will be crafters making baskets, bookbinding, rug hooking, and more. Be sure to stop by the Summer Kitchen to watch the cook prepare some delicious dishes!
