Spring Lambs

Be a part of history! We are looking for those with an interest in working with our heritage breed sheep in our effort of preserving these fantastic breeds.

Our volunteer shepherds help provide the sheep by coming in and working to provide the sheep a clean place to eat and drink, as well as sleep. To ensure the best care for the livestock, two shifts a day (morning and late afternoon) are set-up. Currently we are looking for people interested in helping with our flock afternoons at Winterthur, and several opportunities at Greenbank Mills & Philips Farm.

Unfamiliar with caring for sheep? Not a problem! We will ensure that you have the training that you need to feel comfortable for this rewarding experience. Join us for a very rewarding and unique opportunity.
