The adventure with sheep began over 20 years ago as it seemed an excellent “fit” for our property and our family. Having no prior experience with livestock of any sort, the learning curve was steep but manageable due to the help of knowledgeable shepherds in the area, our children’s experience with 4-H, and perseverance. We have raised and appreciated several different breeds of sheep but now focus on Finn sheep because of their dual purpose, size, docility, excellent maternal skills and prolificacy, as well as their soft, fine fiber.  We produce fine Finn yarn and roving.
