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.

Wheely Wooly Farm on TV!
Half our booth in October with our new tent
The first day of the winter farm market was great! Thanks to all of you who stopped by to purchase fine Wheely Wooly Farm yarns, shawls, scarves and flowers! The market has expanded this year, with more awesome vendors, but I didn't get to walk around much and see them because we were pretty busy. It's always so nice to visit with friends, sip delicious coffee and be a part of the local movement!
As exciting as that all was, we were also very excited at the opportunity to be on our local news! Watch WBAY Channel 2 for video of our booth and our comments about how the market helps small farms like ours! Thanks goes out to WBAY for supporting the efforts of local farms in their struggle to bring so many fine products to the people of northeast Wisconsin!
If you missed us on WBAY, come down to the market next Saturday and see for yourself all of the fine products to be discovered! In one swoop, you can fill a big part of your grocery list AND Christmas shop AND find warm clothing all in one stop. Hope to see you there!
