In The Barn

A highlight of the Shepherd’s Harvest will be the “living catalog” of sheep breeds. A wide variety of wool and meat breeds will be on display.   You can expect to see everything from Black Welsh Mountain to CVM~Romeldale Sheep.  Visitors will have the opportunity to talk with shepherds about their particular breed and sheep may be sold by private treaty.

The Minnesota Lamb and Wool Producers Youth will have an educational booth set up in the sheep barn. You can find a variety of information related to the sheep industry; including recipes, magazines, and facts about the wool & lamb industries.
