Special Events

Sheep Shearing Day
Sunday, May 7
11am – 4pm

Bring the whole family to Stratford’s first sheep shearing day.  Stratford will provide visitors with a wooly experience when the resident sheep and llamas receive their annual shearing.  The flock will be shorn throughout the day, and our shearers will interpret the process from start to finish.  Your family can visit stations to learn how wool is processed.  Participate in hands-on fiber projects, visit the barn and walk the farm.  Eat at the Sock Hop Soda Shop, a fifties-style diner, enjoy listening to the juke box and trying your skill at hula hooping.

No registration needed – $5 per family
