Sheep & shepherd tours begin each spring when lambs are born
CLAREMORE, Okla., February 26, 2021 — Although Shepherd’s Cross in Claremore
welcomes visitors all year, spring is a special season when the weather begins to warm, flowers
bloom in the Bible Garden and the baby lambs are born. Several tour options are available for
visitors looking to experience a peaceful day on the farm.
Sheep & Shepherd Tours:
These tours begin when the lambs are born each spring, usually mid-March, at Shepherd’s Cross.
Come out to see the sheep grazing peacefully in the pastures as the newborn lambs frolic and
jump. The tours can be self-guided or guided with an additional option for a guided wage ride.
Walking tours are donation based (suggested $5 per person), while guided wagon rides start at $7
per person and must be pre-scheduled.

Bible Garden Tours:
Spring time also brings blooms to the Bible Garden. Shepherd’s Cross is home to one of only a
handful of Bible Gardens in the country, and over 100 plants in this garden have Biblical
references. Participate in your choice of a guided or self-guided tour. Self-guided tours are
donation based (suggested $5 per person), while guided tours will include a DIY planting activity
with seasonal plants. Guided planting tours are $7 per person and must be pre-scheduled.

All tours will include visiting the sheep, lambs and other farm animals at the petting barn area;
teaching Nomadic and Biblical shepherding practices; wool mill tour demonstrating combing,
spinning and weaving wool into a finished product; and the educational & interactive Farm
Museum & Educational Silo.
Shepherd’s Cross is open for drop-in visitors Tuesday through Saturday from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30
p.m. Groups of 20 or more will need to be scheduled in advance (one free leader admission for
every 10 paid participants). A picnic area with limited seating is available, so feel free to bring
lunch with you. Snack and beverage concessions are available.
Be sure to visit the Shepherd’s Shop where a host of “woolly” and farm related items and
supplies are featured. Shoppers will discover tons of all-natural yarn that has been produced and
processed on the farm. Shepherd’s Cross also offers roving, batts, felting supplies, knitting
needles, spinning and weaving supplies.
Additionally, the shop features a mission section; purchases made in this section of the store
return 100 percent of the sale price to the indigenous people that crafted them (countries include
Afghanistan, Thailand, Kyrgyzstan, Malawi and Uganda).
Shepherd’s Cross is a family farm, an accredited Agritourism facility, a Made in Oklahoma
Company, and is Animal Welfare Approved (pasture born & raised lamb, mutton and Dexter
beef). Heart of the Shepherd is the non-profit 501-C3 that operates at the farm and provides
Biblically-based agricultural education locally and internationally.
Shepherd’s Cross is a member of Green Country Tourism, one of eight Multi-County
Organizations promoting regional tourism in Oklahoma.
