About Sheep 101 (Registration Now Open)

Outdoor Adventure

December 16, 2019 to June 6, 2020

Owens Farm


Saturday June 6, 2020
8:00 am to 5:00 pm

A full day dedicated to success with sheep,
taught by experienced shepherds on a working farm 


Getting started with sheep? Jump-start the learning curve and avoid common mistakes by spending a day with experienced shepherds--and a lively flock of sheep.  You'll learn practical handling skills, how to prepare for the Top 5 Sheep Problems, see equipment needed...or not..., learn do's and don'ts for purchasing sheep, and find valuable resources for continuing education. Expect a very hands-on experience.  

Program fee is $125 per person.  Pre-registration is necessary and attendance limited to maximize hands-on practice.  



Long drive?  Stay in our guesthouse.  We have accommodations for one group.  Click for details.
