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.

Do I hear snorkeling?
lol...can you hear it?
This picture was taken awhile back of the little boys out grazing. The weather has been so nice, and the grass is growing fast, even on the lawn. It's such a treat after the brown blaze of last summer's drought!
We will be offering some sheep for sale sometime this summer, so watch for their profiles and ads. There aren't very many, so if you are looking to add to your flock, keep an eye out for our posts about sheep for sale here on our blog. We will also put up signs at the market, too, when we are ready.
I'm working on some knitting, dyeing, and other things in preparation for Saturday's market. It's coming up quick! Looks like the weather will be good, too, so be sure to write out your grocery list, look at your patterns, and come to market to stock up!
