Sheep shearing at Linc Farm
Friends of Linc Farm sort freshly-shorn fleece (Lauren O'Malley)

The sheep have been shorn at Linc Farms. The bi-annual sheering event allows farmer Juliet Orazietti to check in on each individual in her flock. She vaccinates them, trims their hooves and gives them a selenium supplement — as well as freeing them from their long coats, of course. The community event sees local residents invited to help sort and bag the fleece, some of which Orazietti will clean and spin into yarn. Shearer Jerry Kelleher clipped 69 sheep this year.
