  • A good time to discover the work of farmers and dogs with the sheep. Demonstration of the dog officer sheep, with the master who almost whispered orders, it's impressive! Then a sheep shearing, simple, fast, efficient, nice work! Explanations in English and German (to our knowledge). Call ahead for the schedule of demonstrations that take place in the afternoon.

  • We loved it! It was informative and it's always lovely to see the working dogs. It was far more touristy than we expected though. When we arrived there were 3 coach loads of tourists!
  • This place is absolutely worth it! Call ahead and see if they're doing a tour for a big group cause you can hop in on those. (Min of 15 people required for tour.) They have a fascinating sheep herding exhibition with their sheep dogs and afterwards you watch one guy shear a sheep both with electric clippers and old fashioned shears. The two tour guides are really knowledgeable since this is also their job and they've been sheep farmers since they were boys. They know the history and really care for their sheep. The tours pay for their farm and allow them to raise 2,000 sheep without killing a single one for produce, while also maintaining a charming tradition.
  • No fault of their own but the weather was raining and cold.The dog was amazing!So smart. Smarter than a lot of humans I know.!Border Collies rock!So obedient.
  • Real entertaining show and some nice skills by both the farmers and the dogs. If you are interested in how sheep farming works, I would definitely give IT a try!
  • Fabulous experience! Great show that educated us all on both the herding and the shearing.
