About Us

Our farm has been an aspiring enterprise since 1982 - the year we got hitched! Michele had been acquiring breeding stock & stockpiling them throughout her college days for the time we would have our own place. Well, we bought the perfect 152 acre old dairy farm & have been renovating it ever since. With Joel's' business acumen & Michele's veterinary training the farm is thriving. So are the 2 little sons we have been blessed with. We love the 'country' life.

The farm usually runs about 150 naturally colored sheep, 100 registered angora goats, a dozen thoroughbred & warmblood horses, a couple of registered Saanan dairy goats, & a few guardian sheep dogs. Of course the resident population climbs to well over 500 each spring when the 'babies' all arrive. By October it's back down to the broad stock & the cycle begins all over.

Our goals are to:

    1. produce quality breeding stock to launch other flocks & to supply other breeders with high caliber genetics that can improve their genetic pool. We work on a reserve/deposit basis.
    2. sell the fiber produced by the sheep & angoras as both finished ready to wear products & in its freshly shorn, raw state. Shearing is always the first weekend in March & 'helpers' are always welcome <hint, hint>.

Please, give us a call
