Sheep Shearing Day at Rising Meadow Farm
We watched the master blade shearer Kevin Ford at work, saw the new baby lambs who were in a separate barn listening to classical music, bought some of the farm's Corriedale yarn, and enjoyed a lunch of lamb stew and homemade apple cake on the farmhouse porch.
SignsMebane, made the amazing apple cake and was wearing a sweater that she had just finished kniting. She had carded the wool, spun it and then knit it herself--all since December--and she had just learned to wheel spin! I'm so impressed....wish I had asked to take a picture.
