Join us anytime this Saturday between 10:00AM & 1:00PM to celebrate sheep and all they provide us! Watch a sheep get its yearly haircut, and after the sheep is shorn, you can skirt, wash, and card its fleece: the process in which wool becomes ready to be turned into cozy clothing and blankets. We'll be spinning wool into yarn bracelets, felting, and a few mother sheep and their lambs will be visiting the Children's Farmyard for you to meet. Details in our profile link.

Did you know Vermont is the largest US producer of maple syrup? The Farm has produced nearly 700 gallons so far, and the season is winding down with less sap running from the trees and fewer boils. Grab your 2018 syrup from the farm before it's gone at the Welcome Center & Farm Store. Video by @dreamlikepictures. #shelburnefarms #maple #vermont #vermontbyvermonters #rootedinvermont #farmlife
