Private Group Farm Tours

These farm tours are great for private school groups, Girl Scouts, Brownies, Boy Scouts and more.  They are geared towards showing kids what we do on our farm, from care of the sheep to shearing and wool production.  There are many group options.  Please email us at lazyosheepranch@gmail.com. We have a wide range of activities that would best suit your group.

We open up our farm tours in April just in time to watch our lamb grow.

Farm Open House

Our animals are excited to open their barn doors to show everyone how they live.  The tentative date is October 14.
