Know anyone who wants to have a go at shearing or stuck for a 7th anniversary woolly gift? Our Shear a Sheep experience sessions are great for anyone who wanted to try some hands on sheep shearing on a Welsh hill farm.
Suitable for 16s & over, this is an hour of tuition with an experienced and friendly shearer who will teach them the basic principles, do a demonstration then help whilst they have a go. There will only be 2 people per session unless you book as a group. The experience takes place usually in June so please see our Experiences page for available dates, or book here for undated gift vouchers. We also have a full day Fleece to Felt experience which includes shearing, lunch and felting so you can work with the shorn wool.
Shearing is a necessary part of sheep farming as the fleeces can become heavy and sheep can die if stuck on their backs for long periods, as well being hot during summer months.
