Sheep & Wool Day Saturday at Springton Manor Farm


Springton Manor Farm

Saturday, April 26 
11:00 AM — 3:00 PM

The day’s highlight is the yearly shearing of the herd which takes place throughout the day. Gather round the shearing tent to watch the shearer remove the woolen fleece and learn what is done with it.

Through hands-on science experiments about food, farming and other agriculture-related products, thePennsylvania Farm Bureau’s self-contained, 40-foot Mobile Agriculture Education Science Lab will answer “how well do you wash?” and “it comes from where?”

Throughout the day, Ridley Creek State Park’s Colonial Pennsylvania Plantation will demonstrate a variety of 18th century toys and games and discuss their significance in a colonial child’s development. They will also present “What We Eat” – a program that investigates the origins of our favorite foods and compares how they were made historically to how they are made today.
