Wheat & Sheep Day

Wheat & Sheep Day

Saturday, Apr 25

12:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Roll up your sleeves and experience life on a colonial-era farmstead! At this family-friendly event, watch as the Thompson-Neely sheep are shorn of their wool using period-accurate techniques and tools. You’ll also go behind-the-scenes of various colonial-era trades, see how sheep’s fleece was used by colonists for clothing, watch a cooper create barrels, and tour the Thompson-Neely House and the grist mill across the street, which were both part of an 18th century farmstead.
