Last year’s First Annual Festival was a huge success – far surpassing our expectations, and we’re ready to do it again!
This year features over 30 Breeds of Sheep and Goats on Display! Talk to the people who raise them!
Watch Sheep Shearing Demos! Goat Shearing Demos! Hoof Trimming Demos! Goat Milking Demos! Yarn Spinning Demos! Educational Booths!
How about Dog Trials?!? Watch highly trained dogs herd the sheep!
Seventeen Club Members will be selling their hand-crafted creations – Goat Milk Soaps & Lotions, all sorts of woolen creations and kits for you to take home and try yourself! Meats and cheeses! Artwork and Jewelry! Farm-themed Home Decor!
The kiddos won’t want to miss the Petting Zoo, Photo Booth and Fall Activities Tent with Pumpkin painting and crafts to do! Purple Lamb Hunt – can you find all three purple lambs? We are putting together a Straw Bale Maze and will have Story Telling Hour with the Three Billy Goats Gruff and copies of the book for kids to take home!
Live Music throughout the day! Multiple Food Stations with a variety of menu items prepared by the Merc Chefs! Our Spinning Wheel of Prizes is bigger and better than last year!
All of this is free to the public! Many thanks to Thee Draper Village at Merc Farms and our Corporate Sponsors for helping us put this day of fun and education together for you – See EWE there!!!!!!!
