Sheep Shearing Day at Glynwood

Glynwood Farm opens up to the community next Sunday, May 15 with the annual family Sheep Shearing Day, celebrating springtime. Each spring, Glynwood celebrates the new planting season with a day of family activities. Tour the farm and gardens, visit with the animals, including newborns, and participate in games and activities conducted at the farm. Watch the sheep get shorn, see wool get transformed into yarn and felt.  Learn about beekeeping and heirloom vegetable varieties suited to the Hudson Valley. Tour the Glynwood greenhouse and learn about energy saving features that have been installed.
       The farm will be open from noon until 4 p.m. and the cost is $10 for adults 18 and over, and free for children under 18. This includes a light lunch.  An onsite market will sell Hudson Valley regional products. Glynwood is located on Route 301.
