Ovis Hill Farm Homeschool Day
by CHEFS Admin - Wednesday, 6 April 2011, 1:11 AM
 
Ovis Hill Farm is a local sheep farm located in Timmonsville, SC. We have approximately 500 sheep. All tours focus on the importance of farms in our society, and the process of converting raw wool into usable fabrics. While at the farm, students will have an opportunity to feed baby lambs, make butter, and take a wagon ride. The wagon ride visits all the animals on the farm stopping for a sheep-herding demonstration with the farm Border collie.

When: Friday, April 29, 2011
Time: 10:00 am to 12:30pm
Cost: $6.00 per person up to $24 per family to be paid at the farm the day of your trip. We accept cash, debit or credit cards.
Optional Activities: These activities will be conducted from 9:15 – 9:50 or 12:30 – 1:30
Gourd painting $5 per person (Allow 20 min for this activity & time to dry)

Please pre-register by April 20th to participate in the tour. If you would like to do either of these optional activities please include it in your email.
