Item Description

Enjoy a day on the sheep farm for up to four people. Dan and Janis Reuter invite you to the Koru Farm in Oxford Township, MN. Come and be amazed watching trained herding dogs handle sheep. Watch the experts or try your hand at it! You are even invited to bring your own herding dog for a try under Janis and Dan's direction.

Take a stroll around the farm and learn about the different elements of raising sheep for wool, including an in-depth look at one of the following with demonstrations: skirting/washing fleece; spinning/carding; or natural dyeing. Or you are welcome to a general overview discussion of the entire process. Lunch is included, and as this is a meat and wool farm, let your taste buds enjoy the freshest flavors of lamb burgers or sausages. Fresh produce is also available. Visits are welcomed year-round, even in April during lambing (the birthing of lambs)! Don't miss this unique opportunity to learn about your favorite fleeced friends!
