Lambs on Easter at Mermaid Farm. — Taylor Achin

Help the FARM Institute prepare its flock for spring during its annual Sheepapalooza sheep-shearing day. On Saturday, April 14, from 10 am to 12 pm, head to 14 Aero Ave. in Edgartown to meet the animals, greet the baby lambs, watch bottle feeding or a sheep dog demonstration, or try a hand at fiber activities such as weaving or felting. Kids can also hop on a wagon ride. Local food will be available for purchase from the Food Truck, serving FARM Institute meat and produce.
