Take a step on the wooly side and join us Saturday, April 28th from 10am-4pm for Greenbank Mills & Philips Farm’s 14th annual Shearing Day & Herb Sale!
Witness living history with the shearing of our heritage sheep throughout the day as we ready them for the warmer weather! Learn colonial skills as
we demonstrate hand processing from sheep to shawl, including natural dyeing and spinning. Knead some yeast action? Our bread oven will be fired up for succulent colonial bread baking demonstrations. Guided tours of our historic mill will be available and our newest exhibit, “Meet The Flock: The Sheep of Greenbank”, will be on display.
Every year we also have a wonderful selection of Amish-grown herbs available for purchase, so come get a head start on your garden with us! Pre-orders are available soon, so be sure to check back for details. We will also have a variety of our wonderful herbs available for purchase during the event.
