Berks/Chester Wool Pool
November 11 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm
The Berks County Sheep and Wool Growers Association will be sponsoring their annual wool pool on Saturday, Nov. 10 and Sunday, Nov. 11. Wool will be collected at the Romano 4-H Center in Chester County on Friday, Nov. 10 from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. and again at the Leesport Farmers Market in Leesport from 8 a.m. to noon on Saturday, Nov. 11. Wool will be purchased by Marty Stegen, Greencastle, PA. Producers are asked to bring their wool in burlap bags but if that is not possible, burlap bags will be offered for sale at each site. Black-faced sheep fleeces need to be separate from white-faced sheep fleeces. A minimal charge of $8.00 per farm will be charged to cover wool pool expenses and the Berks Sheep and Wool Growers membership fee. Producers are reminded to sign up for the LDP program at their local FSA office before the pool if they wish to participate in that incentive program. LDP payments will only be made on wool produced in 2023. The pool will take wool from 2022 as long as it is clean and dry and free from contaminants. For further information, contact Roger Bowman, President of the Berks County Sheep & Wool Growers, at 610-562-4875, or Cheryl Fairbairn, Penn State Extension, at 610-696-3500.
