So You Want to be a Shepherd? by Kristine Byrnes

March 26, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

If you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to shepherd your flock on a pastoral meadow, Kristine Byrnes is here to dispel your tranquil fantasies.

Modern day sheep farming is demanding, physically and mentally, but ultimately rewarding. Kristine will share her strategies for obtaining award winning Coopworth fleeces, (hers have won many honors at Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival and at 4H shows) and talk about what it’s like to live with sheep. She’ll describe the cycle of life on a farm, keeping rams and ewes, and how breeding works.

Winters Past Farm produces both white and natural color fleeces, offers 10 colors of dyes locks, roving for spinning felting or crafting (you can buy an ounce to a pound) natural DK skeins of yarn, wool dryer balls, wool dog and cat balls, (Lil’ Bit, this is for you!) and wooly felted insoles for keeping feet warm and dry.

Programs are free for NY guild members. Join now!
