Description

The 4th Twilight Tour & Tasting will be held Wednesday, June 13, from 4 to 8 p.m. at the Washington County Agricultural Education Center in Boonsboro, Maryland. There will also be tours to the adjacent Western Maryland Research Education Center. The event will showcase all the products produced by small ruminants (sheep and goats): meat, dairy, fiber, and vegetation control.

There will be a fiber demonstration and information presented about using small ruminants to control unwanted vegetation. The event will include wine tasting and a discussion of matching wines with meat and cheese. Wagon tours of the sheep research program at the adjacent Western Maryland Research & Education Center will be conducted.

Pre-registration is required. The registration deadline is June 1. The cost of participation is $10 per person. Children under the age of 10 will be admitted free.
