Sep 14 - 21
Working Dog Wednesdays

Join Edie Steiner and her border collies, Modibo, Rudy and Lincoln, for sheep herding demonstrations on select Wednesdays in September from 4 – 5:30 p.m.  at the historic Perkins Stone Mansion on Mutton Hill. Bring a camera to this free event!

“Mutton Hill” is the name that residents of 19th century Akron gave to Perkins’ 150-acre farm, known for its 1,500 sheep that were reputed to produce some of the finest wool in the world. The Society is collaborating with The Spicy Lamb Farm of Peninsula to bring the sheep to the mansion grounds. Owner Laura DeYoung Minnig, who is also the Executive Director of Urban Shepherds, says “I’m excited to promote urban sheep grazing as a cost-saving and environmental alternative to mowing, while educating youth and recruiting future shepherds.”
