About

The Farm Women of Wing and a Prayer Farm

The women of Wing and a Prayer Farm decided to take their wares to the road in 2010 when they hit the local Farmers' Markets in Southwestern Vermont. Folks loved Char's original aprons, Sarah Jane's gorgeous art, and the fresh fare from the kitchen and fiber from the flock.
Tammy's pride and joy are the Shetland Sheep. They are so huggable and loveable. They'll climb into your lap for cuddles if you let them. We shear them twice a year and have their fleece spun into 2 & 3-ply yarn for fabulous knitting and crocheting. Though Sarah Jane & Charlotte are fine spinners, Tammy is a bit slow, and together they decided to hone their skills in other areas while allowing Battenkill Fiber in Greenwich, NY, Green Mountain Spinnery in Putney, Vermont, Vermont Fiber Mill in Brandon, VT, & Hampton Fibermill in Richmond, VT handle the spinning. We grow the ingredients for the yarn recipes - Cotswold, Cormo, Merino & Shetland wool, Mohair from the Angora Goats & Alpaca fiber from our little herd of alpacas(8 of them!) Beautiful mill spun yarns from working closely with small mills and the owners helps yield the loveliest product from our friends in the fields. They know how to do their fiber justice.
Around here, Tammy is also known as "That Chicken Lady", in hushed tones behind her back. She raises a variety of layer hens, white peafowl (yes, all white), ducks and turkeys for Thanksgiving dinners from Vermont to Ohio...
The local community loves Wing and a Prayer Farm's kitchen - baked goods fly out of the ovens year round, especially during the summer when plenty of fruits are in season.
We had a low year for honey this past year, but hope that 2016 will bring more to the shelves of our store.
