340 Wilson Hill Road in Colrain
Saturday April 16th will be our new Spring Farm and Fiber Day.
Demonstrations by farmers and guest artists- lots of gorgeous fiber to buy- food to taste. And always animals to schmooze with. Fiber demonstrations will be spinning, weaving and needle felting. Farm demonstrations will be shearing an angora (mohair) goat or two, harvesting angora fiber from a contented rabbit, seeing a border collie herd ducks and skirting a sheep fleece.
The farm will be open from 9:30 until 4:30. Demo times are posted below the sheep photo.
