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.

Working Historic Farmhouse
The busiest tool on the farm!
Life around here is busy. We are constantly in and out. There are animals to feed, trees to prune, eggs to gather, snow to shovel, and dogs to manage. There are two feline employees in the barn that come in for an occasional rest, no matter how pouchy their stomachs look! With all this activity, this good 'ole farmhouse tool is positively the busiest and most useful of all. It's in use many times throughout the day. It's never far from a door. It's never far from my hands. What would I do without it?
Some things will always have a useful place, no matter how much the world changes.
