Lismore Sheep Farm Wool Shop

Welcome to the Lismore Sheep Farm Wool Shop web site. Our farm is located just off the Sunrise Trail (Route 6), along the beautiful Northumberland Shore in Pictou County, Nova Scotia. We have a working sheep farm with about 300 sheep. Our sheep are mainly Dorset / Finn crosses which produce a beautiful soft fleece.

Here at Lismore Sheep Farm we use wool to create a wide range of products, some of which include ~ wool blankets, wool filled comforters, wool mattress pads, yarn, hand knit socks, hats, mitts, etc. We also carry a variety of sheepskin products ~ mitts, slippers, seatbelt covers, dusters, insoles. Our washable sheepskins have proven to be extremely popular for a variety of uses, some of which include ~ floor rug, chair cover, motorcycle seat, wheelchairs, etc. The farm is also the home of the River John Needle Company, our new venture making wooden knitting needles.

During the summer the barn is open for visitors to see the sheep and lambs up close. There is also an interpretive display that will interest all ages.

Come and visit the River John Sunday Market on our farm between 10 am and 2 pm on Sundays throughout the summer.
