You will learn about the different sheep breeds and their wool and how the wool is packed and graded. You will also enjoy some fine home baking!
Visit a working sheep farm in a tranquil and picturesque location. Enjoy the experience of watching sheep dogs work, rounding up the flock and penning them for you to touch, examine and photograph.
