Checkmate Farm Partners

Temple Hall 4 H Sheep Club

In Loudoun County, The Temple Hall Sheep Club offers the opportunity for children from 3rd grade and up the opportunity to be assigned to sheep farms to learn the care of animals. In July, the kids show their sheep at the Loudoun County 4H Fair. It is great fun for parents, kids and farmers to work together and gain life long skills. Checkmate Farm supports this wonderful opportunity for families.
