Shetland Sheep: Rich in History, Rich in Textiles
Shetland Sheep: Rich in History, Rich in Textiles! Our farm mission is to enjoy and promote the wonderful diversity of the Shetland breed by fully utilizing to the best of our ability all they have to offer historically. We believe the best preservation and management of this breed includes it's full spectrum of history. We encourage old and new shepherds alike to join in the fun by engaging in fiber arts, especially spinning and knitting, as this breed is so intimately linked with those aspects of the arts.

I Love Sheep!
Peaceful Summer Grazing
Sheep are peaceful. They are easy. They are sweet. They produce warm wool that keeps me going outside for two hours in below zero weather without a tinge of cold or frostbite. I love to see them outside my windows. I love caring for them. I love sitting out by them on warm sunny days. I love how they greet me when I pull in the driveway. Sheep are some of the nicest animals you'd ever want to keep around. There is a lot of joy found here. I love sheep.
