You'll get a hands on farm tour and learn about what it takes to raise some of the most coveted wool breeds in the country. You can bottle feed lambs (during the spring and when available), hold them, and touch some of Namaste Farms champion animals. You'll participate in a working border collie demo and learn what these talented and highly trained dogs really think they're doing (it's not really work to them). If you think you're commanding enough to work the dogs, you might try a go at working Lacey or Nesta on one of the flocks. If working a dog on sheep isn't your thing, you can see what it takes to get the fleece off the animal in a shearing demo and help me trim sheep feet and skirt the fleece. Beyond the nuts and bolts of farming sheep, I'll show you what we do with the wool once it's off the animal. If you love a pro-active experience, try your hand at hand spinning wool into yarn. Navigating the spinning wool delights all and you'll have a mini skein of yarn (spun by you) to take home. If you love animals, here's your opportunity to interact and discover fulfilling life of a farmer. You'll leave Namaste Farms with a smile and the experience of a lifetime.
