|Woolly Weekend is a —sheep to shawl” festival held at Shepherd’s Cross, an authentic working
sheep farm, just north of Claremore on scenic Route 66. Come to the farm and watch as the sheep are shorn (given a hair cut) for the summer. Sheep will be shorn approximately every 30 minutes. The wool will then be processed on site – washed, combed, spun, and woven into a finished product. The farm museum will also be open. The Bible Garden will be available for guided or self-guided tours. Shepherd’s Shop will be open, featuring a host of —woolly” and farm related gifts and wares.
As a part of the event, samples of farm fresh American lamb meat will be available. This American lamb is raised in the pastures at Shepherd’s Cross. The meat is 100% natural, free range, and grass fed. Shepherd’s Cross supports sustainable agricultural practices and is supported in part by the American Lamb Board.
Shepherd’s Cross is home to a non-profit Christian organization called Heart of the Shepherd. This event will also discuss the Biblical references to sheep, shepherding and wool processing. This is a free event. Donations are welcome - suggested donations $2 per person. Woolly Weekend will proceed even in the case of inclement weather. All demonstrations will take place in the Amish built gambrel roof tour barn, which houses some of the animals as well as the wool processing, farm museum, and the gift shop.
