Sheep Shearing Festival
Time for a haircut! Watch as the sheep get their much-needed spring trims. Celebrate Spring on the farm at NYC’s ONLY sheep shearing festival. Farmer-led tours and sheep shearing demonstrations connect visitors to life on the farm. Learn about the cycle of wool processing, shop a selection of Queens Farm’s very own yarn, and visit with fiber artisans as they showcase spinning, weaving, and knitting. Get down to the foot stomping rhythms of live music, and enjoy hayrides ($6/person), kids crafts, and a free scavenger hunt to add to the fun! Visit the historic Adriance Farmhouse for 18th-century cooking demos, and pick up seedlings for your home garden at Queens Farm’s spring plant sale. Be sure to stop by the Con Edison Ecology Booth to Adopt-a-Worm and get recycling tips. Local brews and tasty food vendors will keep you coming baaa-ck for more.
