During the months from July to September we shear all our sheep with the hand shears which is the traditional way of sheep shearing. It is unusual to see hand shearing still in practice as most farmers are using machines now, but Tom doesn’t like the machine believing it takes too much wool off and the sheep can get cold. Join us on this unique journey from June 1 to August 15.
