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.

Sheepy Kind of Weather!
The sheep couldn't be happier! This month has been so lovely, cool, and pleasant that the sheep are just plain gleeful! They are sleeping good, eating good, and the lambs have been having a ball in the evenings, just before dark. The air is so cool and fragrant, yet warm enough for us shepherds to wear short sleeves. Time is flying so mark your calendars everyone! Our first market is coming up already on June 21st!
