Shows for 2017
We were again in Ringoes, NJ at the 22st Anniversary New Jersey Sheep and Wool Festival on September 2017 and had a grand time visiting with the crowd that came by. We exhibit in the Breeds Display, which is the first thing you see when you enter the first of four huge barns - a great introduction to the Fair.We will be back there September 2018 . It is a great show with lots to see. In addition to our Breeds Display we entered 2 fleeces in competion (both won top prizes) and we sold well over half of our fleeces in the sale tent.
The Dutchess County Sheep and Wool Festival in Rhinebeck, NY is also on our schedule for October , where we will again be in the Breeds Display Barn. Our booth combines an eduational display about our breed and a pen of sheep. We will have a white ewe lamb and a dilute black ewe - both are friendly and beautiful. I spend most of my time in the Breeds Barn with my sheep and spinning wheel. Again this year they are  offering a new opportunity to highlight our breed (in addition to the Breed Parade). I will be giving  a talk on "Choosing a breed and preparing your farm for sheep". I made a brochure to hand out - ask for one on email at crofter1@verizon.net

Here is my Display in the Rhinebeck Breeds Barn - stop by for a chat next year!

My favorite visitor in Rhinebeck. He stood and watched me spin for over half an hour.
