Victoria - Hello to all.
We will be shearing at our farm on this Saturday 10/9/16 in order to prepare ourselves for the ensuing fleece collections at Annkea in order to fill this years large white and coloured fleece order with the same buyer as last year. This year they have increased their order as they were VERY happy with the end result.
We must be doing "everything right" as they say.
We also have several mini mills buying from us, so we need ALL colours and ALL microns. Please remember to have animals clean and dry for shearing and get those precious saddles off first.
All skirting and pieces will be accepted as a donation to keep our hard working volunteer group self sufficient. Skirting and pieces MUST also be kept in separate colours.
I will issue a series of collection dates now and may possibly add to them if and when time permits.
If anyone is able to help on any of these dates, could you let me know as we always need help?
The following dates are available for those who wish to bring current fleeces held in sheds from last year or show fleeces left over from previous shows.
There will be more dates to follow after this.
Please book ASAP as it is "first in first served" for time and dates. You are welcome to email or phone me.
Please contact Annette and Keate Woodgate (0419 550 826) or email for further information.
