A New Kind of Shearing Experience
Neil Kessler is the owner and shearer at Appalachian Custom Shearing. He is a Maine native, but his shearing journey started in North Carolina. Earning a degree in Agriculture from Warren Wilson College, the first job he took was as a head guy for a shearer in the Carolinas.
WHY APPALACHIAN CUSTOM SHEARING?
Neil has sheared thousands of alpacas in 16 states and counting, but has built most of his clientele in New England. He currently travels as far south as Georgia each spring. He made a decision early on to focus on smaller herds, special requests, and customers who want a low stress and gentle shearing experience. He aims to give smaller farm owners and animals the same attention and treatment that the larger farms get.
We don't shy away from special cuts here at Appalachian Custom Shearing. While they may cost you a little bit more, they're tons of fun for everyone. Just try to give us a heads up so we have enough time to do it right!
