Blackberry Keep is a small hobby farm situated in the fertile Upper Fraser Valley, over-looking the Fraser River.

Shearing day; one of the most anticipated yet stressful days on the farm. For the shepherdess almost more than the sheep.
It's impossible not to empathize with the little creatures, not wanting them to be frightened or resentful. While simultaneously getting excited over all that glorious fleece.
The fleeces are beautiful again this year. With the addition of the dark brown from the yearling ewes, the farm's Shetland palette is expanding.
Processing the fleeces will begin this weekend and I can't decide which to start with.
