Shearing Days

  • Ballyhoo Farm & Fiber Emporium 2410 Christianburg Rd Bagdad, KY 40003 (map)

Join us as the annual shearing of the Ballyhoo flock commences! Visitors will see two methods of shearing in action. The Emporium will be open for the Fiber Walk, more information about our process, and to purchase farm products.

Assistance is needed and welcome!! If you would like to help, please send us an email noting which day(s) you will be here and in what capacity. Hands-on training is provided for everything except shearing (we might be able to squeeze you in early or real late in the day if you need pointers). This is a great opportunity to learn more about evaluating fiber!

Helping positions include: catching, rousie (sweeping off the shearing floor between sheep, fetching things for shearer, carrying fleece to skirting table), skirter, scribe, shop help, and misc. help.
