Blades, Sheath and moccasins by Martin Bentham

 
 

Join us at Fernhill Farm to see sheep being shorn in our lively shearing shed at our Blade Shearing Tournaments - both in Spring and Autumn close to the 21st March and September Equinox dates

Blade Shearing lessons available from 9am - 11am to allow every age and ability to try shearing with blades.

From Noon until Dark skilled shearers from around the world will take part in this bi-annual tournament to compete with the best and help raise the profile of the Benefits of Blade Shearing here in the UK.

Buy fleece fresh off the boards in the shearing shed, as well as finished products made from our wool in our pop-up Sheep Shop. Beautiful scarves, blankets, yarn, clothing and more in a range of natural and dyed colours. 

Throughout the day wool spinning, peg loom weaving and needle felt workshops will be available from the Fernhill Fibre team, and we welcome all those who use natural resources to promote and create rural activities.

Keeping with tradition we invite local food stalls, folky musicians, and volunteers to help us serve up Somerset Ales, Wines and Ciders to our thirsty spectators and hard grafting shearers!

We also wish to continue to offer foraging walks throughout the day, where you can learn to find food growing wild around this farm landscape. More details on how to book coming along soon

Free entry to all – it's an unusual rural family day out and please do get in contact if you wish to get involved wool@fernhill-farm.co.uk All proceeds are donated as prize money for talented shearers

Camping available to pre-book and please visit www.fernhillfibre.co.uk for details of our sheep shop and workshops
