At TFI’s annual Sheepapalooza, kids and adults both can watch sheep shearing, meet the 58 lambs that live there, try various forms of fiber arts such as spinning, weaving, dyeing, and felting; watch sheep dog demos, take wagon rides, and dye eggs with natural dye. Local food available for sale will be TFI burgers, shepherd’s pie, and a local green salad. Admission is $5; $10 for families. For more information, call 508-627-7007 or visit
