The demonstrations will run from 10:00 a.m. till 4:00 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday, April 16 and 17. The farm is at 1N600 County Farm Road, West Chicago, Illinois 60185-4435. It is between North Avenue and Geneva Road, on the west side of the road. Entrance is free.

Visitors on these days will be able not only to see our dogs show how sheep are herded by dogs, but also view demonstrations of sheep shearing and the spinning and weaving of wool fibers.

Connie, John and the dogs have been part of this great annual event for many years now and it has become a favorite for the public, attracting record-breaking crowds to Kline Creek Farm. We hope that this year you will be able to join us.

You may phone us or the farm (630-876-5900) for further information.
