Lovely handdyed yarns & fibre batts. The frog bag is very cute & I'm looking forward to trying the soap. Great communication & quick shipping.

About

The Straw Family Farm - Home of RJ's QTs

When Lee was a child the land was just a place to house the few horses that his parents used on the Rodeo Circuit. However, Christy, an Ex-Air Force Brat, dreamed of making it more of a place with Roots that run deep.

Soon Christy found her nitch in the farming world. She worked wonders and saved Baby farm animals that would have other wise passed away without notice. It all started with bottle calves. Christy seemed to have a knack for being able to get them over whatever ailed them even taking in a calf that had been attacked by a coyote and one that didn't like milk. From that point on, it was decided to use the land for a bottle baby farm and a place for rescue animals to come while on the road to recovery. They nursed anything that people brought them and soon they were running a full scale Baby farm with pickup and delivery services available. People brought their hurt, injured or just rejected Animals of all sorts for them to raise. They took in just about everything including goats, sheep, calves, pigs, kittens and puppies. Somewhere along the way Christy ended up taking in Rescue animals that others had abused or neglected.

In 2011 their Son, RJ took the farm in yet another direction by adding fiber animals to his own flock housed on the farm making this farm a true family venture. Today the Farm has a little bit of everything but it still remains true to it's first goal ... Helping Animals in need. While Lee works off the farm at a paying job just to keep the farm going, Christy takes on the daily chores of the farm as well as handling RJ's education. While they work hard all day, by the Grace of God they come together each night as a family to play even harder.

The last twist came when Christy noticed people coming and just parking in the driveway to watch the animals. That lead to interactions with a ton of questions. Soon, Christy took a very important turn with the farm and got it recognized by the Oklahoma Dept. of Agritourism. This move provided the farm with an opportunity to teach others. Now there are workshops that helped link the farm to lessons and learning activities so that we can reach school kids and yet utilize any and all teachable moments to make an impact in their learning abilities as well as bring Agriculture to the class room. We never want to hear a child say there is nothing to do outside!

This shop is where we sell our over flow products to pay the feed and Vet bills for all the furry friends here on the farm
