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.

A few of my favorite things...
Not just any yarn though! I like REAL yarn, the kind that comes from sheep. Why? It is amazing stuff to handle and is incredibly high performance in a garment. Good, real yarn inspires ideas. Life is never boring. There are always new ways to use it, create with it, wear it, be warm with it, share it. Sheep are such nice animals, and raising fiber is pleasant for people, and sheep. It's amazing stuff, amazing culture, and amazing nature all in one. Those are definitely a few of my favorite things!
