RANCH DAY, A GREAT FAMILY OUTING
Anna and Don Harvey have a great lineup in store for visitors during their annual Ranch Day event Saturday, Aug. 9, at their very diverse and productive ranch/farm property in Sierra Valley, Harvey Farms and Forestry. There will be educational workshops, demonstrations and tours of their working sheep ranch and saw mill facility. For a minimal fee, you can attend your choice of classes offered by several experts covering topics that include rug hooking, bow loom weaving, beginning spinning, spinning on a drop spindle, sheep shearing, making pine needle ornaments and more. A ticket for their Basque lamb barbecue, noon – 2 p.m., includes a wagon ride during which riders will learn the rich history of the land and its occupants from the late 1890s to the present (tickets for the ride can be purchased separately). A portion of the day’s proceeds benefit local 4-H and FFA groups. For complete details visit www.annagotwool.com.
