Shearing Day Open House

Shady Side Farm - Holland, Michigan

Shady Side Farm will host our Annual Shearing Day on Saturday, March 1st from 9 am - 3 pm (come and go as you wish.) Our farm is located at 13275 Blair Street, Holland, Michigan. We will be shearing our Polypay sheep that day, and our open house is geared toward folks who want to see shearing on a working farm and learn more about wool production.

Fiber artists will demonstrate their work, and wool products (roving, yarn, etc.) will be available to purchase in our little on-farm shop.

The open house is suitable for families and folks of all ages, though very small children sometimes are bothered by the noise and smells of a sheep barn. Wear old clothing and dress warmly. We shear in a barn. :)

The event is free. Our friends from the Critter Barn will join us to help answer questions. Out of gratitude for their great work educating people of all ages about farming, we are asking those who come to our shearing day to consider a donation to the Critter Barn. But there is absolutely no obligation to donate.
