Come to the Plantation on Saturday, May 8th or Saturday May 15th and see our rare breed sheep lose their fleece. We will have Eva Mergen, one of our farmers, explain how to shear and then demonstrate the skill by using hand shears. We will also have people demonstrating most of the steps for turning that wool into cloth for clothing, and visitors will have an opportunity to card wool. We will explain how to care for sheep, what they eat, and the advantages of various breeds. There will also be a chance to learn about our other farm animals including our horses, ox, pigs, chickens, geese, ducks, and turkeys. There will be hearth cooking, garden, farm, and house tours. Check website for shearing times. Enjoy a day in the country that is very close to home.

The Plantation’s hours are 11 to 4 with the last admission at 3. Admission is $10 for adults, $6 for children ages 4 to 12. Children under age 4 are free. The Colonial Pennsylvania Plantation is an independent, non-profit 18th century living history farm museum located within Ridley Creek State Park. It is most easily reached via the park’s Route 3 entrance just west of Newtown Square. Visit www.colonialplantation.org to learn more about this and other events.

As always, COVID safety measures will be in place, and masks that cover your nose and mouth will be required.
