Spring on the Farm! Explore the role that sheep played in the lives of Islanders during the mid-19th century. See sheep being shorn, help wash their fleece and then watch it being spun into yarn and woven into cloth. Other activities offered on this day are hearth cooking, toys and games and ox-drawn wagon rides. Admission $8; children ages 5 and under free. All activities are weather dependant and subject to change. Sheep shearing will begin around 10am and last all day. Shearers will take a lunch break around noon, then start back up.
