October Farm Dates!

Sunday, October 4th and Sunday, October 25th will be Open Farm Days weather permitting from 11:00 AM to 3:00 PM. We will have spinning and needle felting demonstrations. Check out our beautiful hand spun and hand dyed yarns. We have patterns and knitting kits too! Holidays are just around the corner so plan your farm visit and pick up some yarn to make your gifts!

Sunday, October 25th, Ray will show and tell about our animals. Today the animals had their annual examinations by our large animal vet, Sarah. Sassie, our llama, was sheared! Wait until you see how pretty she looks! When our grandson Nathan was 7 years old he designed the needlefelted sheep you see in the picture. We have made up some kits and I will demo how to needlefelt from Nathan's design! Hope you can make one of the two dates we are open!!
