Welcome to The Back of the Beyond. Here we (my Dear Husband and myself) plan on offering the products from our farm. We believe in knowing where our food comes from and simpler living (mind you not simple because we just can't give up netflix yet!). I grew up in the middle of NOWHERE. And in the middle of NOWHERE there wasn't a whole lot to do but day dream, chores and homework. I did alot of the first and second and tried to avoid the third.

I watched my Grandma knit, crochet and spin when I visited her but it wasn't until she passed on and I inherited her supplies that I decided to follow her lead...Now my husband, my son and I live on some acerage in the middle of FARM COUNTRY (yay, an upgrade!). Our farm got started right after we were married during that wonderful phase when "yes" and "sure" are more often the response to outlandish questions such as: 'What do you think about getting some sheep wouldn't that be fun?', 'I know we have three sheep but I saw the two cutest lambs ever may I get them?', 'I think that we should get some chickens, they won't be any trouble and they'll give us eggs what do you think?' ... So now we have a registered romney flock of two rams, eight ewes, an assortment of poulty, rabbits and a guard llama affectionately named Groundskeeper Willie; that give to us meat, eggs, fiber and hides.

We raise our animals on pasture but also supplement when needed. Almost every single animal has a name (some of the poultry act and look too alike to keep straight). We believe in a low input, healthy output farming model. We want harmony, not a production line. Our animals receive health care when needed but animals that we have to carry with medication often get shipped off to greener pastures. We believe everyone should be connected with where food comes from be it from a plant or animal. Farming shouldn't be an 'industry' and shouldn't be full of extremes. It should be a balanced way of life.

We do hope that you enjoy what we have to offer and remember we're just starting out here if you don't see something you like please check back.

Payment
We accept Paypal as a payment method at this time. Payments must be received at time of purchase or the item will be relisted and negative feedback given.
Shipping
Any shipping overages of a dollar or more will be refunded to the customer via paypal. I agree with many other etsians that no one should profit on shipping. Shipping is through the USPS. Purchased items will be shipped within 24 hours of payment unless payment is received Saturday then item(s) will be shipped the following Monday. Insurance should be purchased on any item that is too valuable to lose or be damaged and should be asked for in the comment section when purchasing.
Refunds and Exchanges
We will do our best to insure your satisfaction with this product. If you have any questions or concerns feel free to message us at our store on etsy. If there is a defect found in the article that you have purchased you have 5 days to contact us with reference to the defect and send it back for replacement or refund. We try very hard to make sure that our textual description of color is accurate so please read the description of the color of an article up for purchase, in addition to looking at the picture because due to color variances on monitors we do not accept returns of fiber, fleece, yarns, batts or hides due to wrong coloration.
Additional policies and FAQs
We do accept custom orders on yarn at this time.
