Grace Valley Farms 2016 Shearing Day

The 30 sheep at Grace Valley Farms were sheared last week! Shearing went well and we had a very helpful crew turn out to work in the barn. We again have a beautiful array of freshly-shorn Romney fleeces. We are excited to share them with you!
Karsten came back and sheared for us again. He did a great job! The white sheep were sheared first.

The skirting team with HoneyLisa's fleece.

Gulliver's fleece was huge and hung off the skirting table!

After the shearing was finished, we enjoyed a big barbecue dinner to celebrate a good day's work! 

We are currently in the process of cataloging the fleeces (taking pictures, skirting, recording color, staple length, fleece weight). There should be around 25 fleeces for sale this year.
