Hello Sheep Producer and Sheep Enthusiast:


It’s that time of year again -- we are gathering memberships for the year 2018. Before you put this letter aside, please take the time to see what our organization is all about.


The New England Sheep & Wool Growers Association got started in 1926 to promote sheep and wool thru various activities, and it still does the same today! The Association sponsors or is actively involved in all the following:


        Used Equipment Auction – July 20, 2019

        North East Youth Sheep Show – July 18-21, 2019

        Harry Hardwick Scholarships (2)

        New England Youth Award Grants (2)

        4‑H Sheep Show @ "The Big E " – September 28 – September 29, 2019

        Don Kinsman Carcass Show @ "The Big E”- September 15, 2019

        Fiber Nook @ “The Big E”- September 13 – September 29, 2019

        The Fall Fiber Festival of New England – November 2 & 3, 2019


In an effort to promote this Association and its activities as well as local state sheep association activities, we have created an informative website, and Facebook pages for the North East Youth Sheep Show and the New England Sheep & Wool Growers.  Our goal this year is to add to our directory of members with breed(s) they raise and/or services they offer. This directory will be available on the website as well as paper copy at events.


Come join us!  Just fill out the membership form enclosed and send it to Scott Poitras, Treasurer, along with your $10.00 check made payable to NES&WGA, and you will become an instant member!!  By paying your dues, you will be promoting your own farm or operation by being listed in the Directory while helping this Association grow! 


Interested in joining a Committee or have any suggestions?  Let us know! The Association is always looking for volunteers to help with the various activities it is involved in.


Look forward to hearing from you, 


Matt Syme, President

402 Main St., S. Windsor, CT 06074
