Real Farm Holidays

Kirkwood Real Farm Holidays > Shear-a-Sheep


Shear-a-sheep is weather dependent (sheep must be dry) but a provisional date must be arranged in advance to secure a shearing instructor. We can keep the sheep indoors overnight to ensure they are dry.

Party will meet and make way to the Farm sheds, where, probably seated, they will get a 15-30 minute demonstration of sheep shearing.

If wanted, and if we have enough (dry) sheep available, then guests can try their hand at shearing themselves under strict supervision from the instructor.

There will also be a short explanation about sheep farming, sheep breeds and husbandry. It will take, over all, around an hour although each additional guest shearing will add 15-20 minutes.

Costs – Demo only £50   PLUS       To try shearing yourself – £30/person.
