Shepherd’s Cross Offers Field Trips to the Farm!

-submitted by Shepherd’s Cross

Sheep & Shepherd Tours begin when the lambs are born each spring (mid-March) here at Shepherd’s Cross, an authentic working sheep farm, just north of Claremore on scenic Route 66. Come to the farm and watch as the sheep peacefully graze the pastures, and rest by the still waters. The newborn lambs jump for joy and frolic in the pastures.
