Weekend With Fellow Shepherds!

Wild Rose Farm Table At Symposium
Wild Rose Farm went to "Pennsylvania's Shepherd Symposium" in State College this weekend.
We set up a small table display with our naturally dyed yarns, combed top, accessories, & "up-cycled" wool finds like the "name-brand" wool sweater in the picture.  The  session on Saturday focused on parasite management strategies & general flock health.  Sunday morning was a specialized workshop on developing a farm Manure Management Plan --- PA livestock owners are required to have a written plan by the end of 2013.   Yes, if you own one or two horses, you're included too!  More info & helpful links in my next post.
All in all, a great weekend with fellow shepherds ..... caught up with some old friends and made some new ones!
