When we arrived two of the dogs eagerly greeted us (or maybe they were herding us into the building). We went outside and the caller demonstrated the intelligence, agility, and discipline of these border collies. It was amazing to watch even in the rain. Inside...More

Very informative, rounding sheep demonstration and as far as I know they do a sheep shearing experience in season. This farm does not directly raise/breed these sheep for meat which was an additional plus! Very friendly owners, very affordable, hands on experience. We got to...More

They let you watch the sheep dogs at work herding the sheep on the mountains. Afterwards, you get to watch a sheep sheared. It was more fun than I thought. Be sure to visit the gift shop for neat gifts and soaps.

Awesome! Beautiful location. It was so much fun watching the Border Collie work. Be prepared for changing weather. We had hail and sunshine. Great experience, don't miss it. Seven euros very reasonable. It is short but very fun.
