There's something wonderful about sustainable farming, raising sheep and improving our natural environment.
When I was semi-retiring from the world of computers and digital design, I moved my office out to the country to join my husband. During that time our sustainable farming included grass fed Angus beef and hay crops. I soon found these cattle were far to large for me to handle. I soon got a flock of Corriedale sheep and my life changed in so many way.
Shortly after their first shearing, I realized I wanted to keep all the lovely wool for knitting, so I began learning to wash, card and spin it. Classes in weaving, wool judging and wool classing have rounded out my knowledge.
Over the years the flock has had many breeds and wool types added. Our breeding programs have developed purebreds and crosses with unique wool characteristics. Selling fleeces and wool products has helped our farm become more sustainable, and we strive to give our farm animals a healthy and happy life.
If you don't see what you are looking for, please ask. My friends with flocks are happy to share their wool too. Discover the big, wide world of sheep breeds close to home. Canadian sheep breeders grow some of the most extraordinary wool in the world! Convo me - there’s nothing I enjoy more than helping someone discover the unique characteristics of wool!
Shepherd & Wool Judge, Spinner, Weaver
My first flock of sheep arrived 2004. Caring for sheep and wool has became a way of life. How unique each fleece & animal is.
Always close by and helpful, Farmer Bob does animal chores if I can't be there. He drives parcels to the post office too.
Bella & Pal
Sheep Guardians, Predator Control
Bella (head guardian) and Pal (lamb protector) are Marama x Great Pyrenees. The sisters have lived with the sheep from birth.
The Shearing Team
Lorrie Reed and his shearers are booked 3 months in advance of the day. They do an excellent job keeping the well being of sheep and wool in mind. Lots of family and friends also lighten the workload!
Heidi is a Kelpie-Border Collie who saves me so much time and energy. She herds ewes, lambs, rams, ducks and chickens to wherever they need to be. Couldn’t do chores without her!
