MORRISTOWN, NJ -- Celebrate spring by experiencing a live sheep shearing at Fosterfields Living Historical Farm on Saturday April 27.  

Spend a day on the farm, watching as each sheep gets its own ‘haircut’ to remove its woolen fleece that has grown thick since last spring. Learn how the fleece is then processed into woolen fibers and fashions, and dyed with brilliant, natural colors over an open fire.

Enjoy fun, hands-on activities, such as weaving, spinning and crafting, and meet the cute, baby lambs. Finish your day off with a tour of the Foster family’s 1854 Gothic revival-style mansion, the Willows.
