Welcome to New Hampshire Sheep and Wool Growers Association, a non-profit agricultural organization.
NHSWGA promotes and supports New Hampshire's Sheep and Wool industry. We focus on teaching management skills, educating the public and providing a forum for shepherds to meet and exchange ideas. Workshops and clinics throughout the year are free to members (or at a minimal cost). Our largest educational event is the annual New Hampshire Sheep and Wool Festival.
Members have the opportunity to promote their own products and services in the Classified Ads section of our website. They also have the opportunity to provide free business card size ads in our Yankee Shepherd newsletter.
There are also opportunities for members to provide tours at their farms, submit articles to our newsletter, mentor new sheep producers, help with educational workshops and provide assistance at our annual Sheep and Wool Festival. We also support sheep related youth activities in New Hampshire.
