Our Sheep Get a Spring Haircut!

Welcome Spring!

Clatter Ridge Farm and Hill-Stead Museum are celebrating spring by giving their sheep haircuts and welcoming the first baby lambs of the season.

“The Art of Shearing” Festival has been postponed due to these unprecedented times, but the shearing must go on. We care deeply about our land, our animals and our customers and wanted to share this special experience.

Watch the action and check out the before and after photos below!

Watch this video in its entirety. It’s Sheer Adorableness!

And a slideshow of before and after pictures.


Please note that Hill-Stead’s grounds and gardens will be open from 7:30am to sunset. We invite you to take a self-guided walk and enjoy the property’s natural beauty.

    I absolutely love seeing the sheep getting sheared. Thank you so much. I got my knitting needles out right after seeing this.
    My visit is planned for mid-June as I will be fully vaccinated by then; this will; be my first “official” outing from my home in Maine.
    I can hardly wait. The vaccine is my “Getting Out of Jail Card” after being at home for over a year. 🙂

    Thanks for you message. Mid- to late-march is the best time. Keep an eye on the website and our social media!

    Can you tell me when the sheep will be having their babies this year. I have a 5 year old granddaughter who would love to see them. Thank you so much,
