Twice a year our hay field puts forth for our animals. Here is the field and here is Ray working on his baler. It is always a BIG job. The twine doesn't always tie. The weather doesn't always cooperate but this hay came in just fine with no major difficulty! Yeah!!
About Us: Simple Gifts Farm grows fine fiber from our Olde English babydoll Sheep and our alpacas. Ray, Marti's husband, tends and shears the sheep and alpacas. In truth our sheep, alpacas and other animals are resident family members! Once our roving returns from the fiber processing mill, Marti spins the roving into yarn. As a passionate fiber artist, Marti designs patterns for hand spun natural and hand dyed yarns. In addition to making her fine yarns and roving available for purchase, Marti makes up kits with her patterns and yarn. Marti has great enthusiam for spinning, knitting and design. Marti loves to share her fiber dreams and loves to talk about her "furry" friends. Enjoy Ray's adventures as a gentleman farmer. Once the frost disappears, Ray's shovel is in the dirt.
