About

We are located in the heart of Southern Minnesota, nestled among the wooded rolling hills of Waseca county. I raise angora goats with the help of my kids. My herd usually numbers around 125 goats, but increases during the spring kidding season. We do our own hay baling for winter feed, and in the summer I mainly keep my goats on pasture. My kids also help with the veterinary work, shearing, and fencing (to keep my wandering goats home!). For bigger jobs like roofing the barn, I coerce my husband into helping when he’s not busy with his own excavating business.

Since I started raising Angora goats in 1987, I have been selectively breeding for animals with fine ringlet curls. These are the kind of locks that hand spinners and handcrafters like to use in their fiber projects. I shear my entire herd in the fall and spring. My well-fed goats usually produce 4-6 pounds of fine curly hair per shearing…

I save the cleanest, curliest mohair for our fiber projects. My oldest daughter Michelle and sister Mary also contribute their crafting skills, as they are both avid knitters and hand spinners, and absolutely love the way mohair works up into fuzzy warm mittens and hats. We do our own yarn dying and spinning. The wool I use in the blended yarns is from some of my fiber friends who have flocks of their own.

We also sell 100% mohair roving, mohair/wool blends, and natural and dyed mohair locks. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions about one of our listings.

Thank you for your interest!
