Description: Celebrate the arrival of spring on the farm! Sheep-shearing, dyeing wool, and weaving cloth are just some of the activities. Scottish border collies display their skills with sheep-herding demonstrations throughout the day, while newborn lambs frolic. Visitors are invited to explore each step in the process of turning wool into cloth using 18th-century techniques.
