Shearing Fest

April 7 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

It’s harvest time!

Join us Sunday, April 7 from 10am – 3pm

At WoodsEdge, farming for fiber has been a multi-generational labor of love. Fred Walker was known as a pioneer when it came to shearing in the alpaca & llama industries and Linda Berry Walker was a fiber and textile matriarch in the alpaca world. WoodsEdge’s history is steep in breeding fiber producing livestock for end-use products. Today, we carry on their legacies and celebrate the WoodsEdge vision as we prepare to shear at our 48th Annual Shearing Fest.

In the world of alpacas & llamas, “harvest time” comes much earlier than autumn. In fact, it usually occurs in the spring. Shearing Day is when the annual fleece growth is shorn off the alpacas & llamas to prepare them for comfort as the hot summer weather approaches. Watch the first step in our Field to Fashion process where we harvest luxurious fiber that is converted into functional and fashionable items. The WoodsEdge Farm Store will be open for your shopping pleasure. Attendance & parking are free. Event is rain or shine. Dogs are not permitted.

Address: 78 Bowne Station Rd., Stockton, NJ 08559
