Fleece Competition

Congratulations to Scott Reardon, of Rockford with his winning Grand Champion Fleece for the 2018 show.

The Wool Pavilion is always of interest with local high quality fleeces on display, and there is usually a farmer kicking about to answer any questons you may have on growing a good fleece.
