One of my favorite reasons to go to the Mt. Bruce Station Sheep & Wool Festival is to see the seasonal displays around the farm. This event features the most beautiful Fall vignettes I have ever seen. The farmhouse doors are draped with dried seed & sunflower swags and most entryways are flanked with pumpkin towers or bunches of bittersweet. You can shop the row of vendors selling "sheep stuff" (wool rovings, yarn, custom knitting needles etc.), take a felting class, watch a sheep shearing or see a loom in action. It is wonderful reason to snack on apple cake & cider and enjoy a pretty Fall afternoon outdoors.
