Sheep Shearing

Shearing promises to be an exciting competition. This year there are two Dutch champions 2022 participating: Dennis Kuiper from den Burg and Johannes Kloosterman.


Besides the market stalls filled by wool entrepreneurs and wool hobbyists, there are demonstrations and explanations about the sheep, the sheepskin, the boning of a lamb (in the butcher shop of Den Hoorn) and the landscape formed by sheep farming. There is also sheep milk ice cream.
