Every year in early Spring, Fox Wire Farm of Toano brings a shearing crew to the farm to shear our herd and harvest the year’s fiber crop. The 2020 Shearing, will be a one-day event that will be announced sometime after the first of the year. You can follow us here or on Facebook or Instagram for updates about the 2020 Shearing when it is announced. Typically, our Shearing is held in early April each year.
Shearing Day is an exciting and fun-filled day during which we run Shearing Tours to the farm so individuals can see firsthand how shearing is done and learn about our alpacas and their fiber.
The 2018 Shearing was such a success that it made the news! You can enjoy the clip here.
Our 2019 Shearing was very well attended with over 270 guests touring the farm to witness the shearing.
