Feeling sheepish? Then you might want to attend the Indiana Sheep Symposium in Lebanon, Indiana, this fall.
The event, which is also the annual meeting of the Indiana Sheep Association, gives visitors the opportunity to meet sheep farmers who raise the woolly animals for food and fiber. Several Indiana farms sell farm-raised lamb directly to consumers, while other sheep producers offer wool or fiber arts materials for crafty folks.
The symposium takes place on Sept. 24, 2011, at the Boone County Fairgrounds. This year’s event is titled “Meat Ewe @ the Symposium,” and the focus is overcoming obstacles for expansion. Find out more at www.indianasheep.com.
