This year we went to the New York State Lamb & Wool Festival in Rhinebeck, NY. We had so much fun and meet so many people that have enjoyed Barn Tours through out the years. We set up a interactive educational display all about agriculture and the animals revolving around wool production. We had so many kids enjoy the game 'Plinko' they tested their knowledge of agriculture and the animals displayed in the banners. The kids walked away with T-shirts, hats, pencils, key chains an of course learning one thing new agriculture.
We loved being in up state New York and watching the fall colors change. The festival brought out so many different vendors of wool and wool products. I have never seen so many different shades of yarn. And the amount of people that braved the cold the first day for the festival was staggering. The breed display showed many breeds of sheep I wasn't familiar with and it was nice to see as well as be educated by. With over 900 breeds of sheep is hard to be familiar with them all.
