Woolly Weekend


Barleylands Farm Park, Barleylands Road, Billericay CM11 2UD

Saturday 25th May 2024 and Sunday 26th May 2024

“Grab your woolly jumpers and join us for our Woolly Weekend! We have a whole barn dedicated to sheep fleeces.

Watch our sheep being shorn (Saturday only) and learn about the processing of wool; shearing, washing, to spinning and knitting! We will have a spokesperson explaining how the sheep are being sheared and expert craftsman on hand demonstrating how to handle the fleece once it has been sheared, with presentations and spinning wheel demonstrations.

We will also have other farm equipment on hand to show how we care for our sheep. Ever wondered how to give a sheep a pedicure? Come and find out!

Lastly there will be crafts and biscuit decorating as well as all your other farm park favourites!”
