|We're glad you are here! We offer a fine selection of fleece and fibers from Michigan grown sheep and goats.
Our livestock produce soft-as-a-cloud cashmere and wear-next-to-your-skin fine wool spinners' roving, comforter batting, felted hats, coin purses or cell phone covers, handspun and custom spun yarns and hand knitted scarves, ponchos, sweaters, baby blankets, socks and shawls. Here's a little vignette about the farm by Kat Peterson, State News Reporter. She visited us in January 2011.
We've moved toward a finer fleece by welcoming Bob, the Moorit California Variegated Mutant ram to our farm in 2012 (he's still here, but is now a "unic". Six natural color ewes from 2013 are on the farm - We now boast fine looking natural color crosses and pure white Merinos. No lambs this year (we all took a year off), this fall (2014) we will welcome a registered merino ram from Green Field Village.
