The Good Day Out

Enjoy a fun and active day out with organic farmers Paul and Liz in the Brecon Beacons National Park, where they will be shearing the lovely Sheep Trekking Jacobs sheep and demonstrating all things woolly. 16’s and over will be able to have a go at shearing a sheep and everyone will then join in with rolling fleeces, stuffing into wool sacks, fleece washing and carding. Following a tasty soup lunch, there will then be a felt making workshop using some of the wool prepared earlier, and you will be able to take home a truly hand crafted item.
If you need accommodation, you can book one of the lovely Aber Cottages at the Sheep Trekking Farm or have a look at our suggestions for other places to stay locally.

Need to Know

Lunch and refreshments are provided. Only 16's and over may actually shear a sheep (children will be offered other helping roles). Times may vary depending upon weather. Please bring wellies and clothes that can get dirty or overalls. Children must be accompanied by an adult. Please note we have very friendly dogs. Your own dogs are sadly not welcome for this experience due to possible stress levels for the sheep. The experience is conducted with a small group so early booking is advisable.
