We had our first snow a couple of days ago while most of Vermont had temperatures above 40 degrees and rain. Our farm sits on a hillside at 1,800 feet and we often see snow when those just four miles away in town have rain. By noon, we had a foot of snow on the ground and were waiting for the plow truck to clear the roads. The plow truck finally came in the late afternoon leaving our mailbox a bit askew.
Come meet our new lambs and then join us for a family felting activity. Each family will make a felted wall hanging to take home.$25/family (one wall hanging) All children must be accompanied by a parent.

Have you always wanted to own a lamb? Here is an opportunity to help us support two of our new ewe lambs. These lambs have beautiful silver grey fleeces that we will combine with our ewe named April to provide you with a delightfully soft and unique all natural yarn. By purchasing this yarn CSA, you will help pay for hay and shearing costs for two of our new ewe lambs named Callie, and Clover.
