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.

Things are just DUCKY around here!
Meet our new farm employees! They are one week old baby Indian Runner ducklings, and we are thrilled to have them! Along with the two geese, their mission will be to vacuum the pastures and garden of unwanted bugs and weeds. (I should do an update on the geese...I LOVE our geese!!) They make the cutest little whistling peeping sounds and are very musical! Even though winter seems to be carrying on here with snow and ice everywhere, spring has actually arrived...if only in the house! These little ducklings will grow remarkably fast in the weeks to come. We'll keep you posted!
Have a nice weekend everyone, and don't forget to check out our new shop on Etsy! We have a beautiful array of yarns available, including some perfect for spring knitting that you won't want to miss! (Find the link in yellow on the right side of our blog here.)
