It's Autumn, which means it's time to shear again! 

Join us on Fernhill Farm to watch the sheep being shorn in our lively shearing shed. Skilled shearers will be travelling from round the world to take part. 

Buy fleece fresh off the boards in the shearing shed, as well as finished products made from our wool in our pop-up Sheep Shop. Beautiful scarves, blankets, yarn and more in a range of natural and dyed colours. 

There will be loads of exciting activities including axe-throwing, weaving a poncho from the freshly shorn wool and sculpting sheep out of willow.

Free entry to all – it's a perfect family day out! Food and refreshments will be available for purchase.
