Shearing Sheep with Jeff Burchstead

Published on May 1, 2017 by Maria Lamb

 

Shearing Sheep with Jeff Burchstead
May 6 @ 10:00 am – 2:00 pm
Free to Students
Expert sheep shearer Jeff Burchstead visits College of the Atlantic’s Peggy Rockefeller Farms to demonstrate shearing techniques with the College’s flock of Romney sheep as part of COA’s Food & Farming Workshop Series.

Have you ever wondered how that comfy wool sweater or pair of socks got its start? If so, then come to Peggy Rockefeller Farms to experience the first steps of the sheep-to-shawl process.

Dress appropriately for weather and a barn setting, and be prepared to get your hands a dirty.

COA’s Food & Farming Workshop Series offers experiential, placed-based skills training for students and the broader MDI community. Held in various locations including COA’s farms, community garden, and dining hall, workshop topics range from sheep shearing to chainsaw maintenance to mushroom cultivation. Whether you’re a student, farmer, home gardener, or just a curious citizen, we welcome you to join us for a workshop.

Students attend for free and receive priority registration.

Meet The Author
Maria received degrees in both business and psychology and had worked as both a travel professional and a real estate agent when she realized that she could combine both of her passions — travel and residential real estate and design. Managing vacation rental properties since 2003, she has spent countless hours obsessively networking with other vacation rental professionals. Her love for residential architecture and beautiful landscapes has led Maria to collect houses around the globe, including one purchased sight unseen on the Bay of Fundy in Canada. She’s also been lucky to live in some really cool locales – an 18th century carriage house on Beacon Hill in Boston, a medieval castle in Europe, several resorts in the Caribbean and Mexico, and a historic Spanish-eclectic Pacific view home in southern California. Maria currently divides her time between an artsy farmhouse in Machiasport, Maine, a quintessential cape house on Cape Cod and a beach cottage in tiny Phinney Cove, Nova Scotia. Oh, and her, oh-so-chaotic, home life consists of a musician hubby, two teenagers, four cats, two dogs and a diaper-wearing house-chicken.
