Summer Happenings

It's been a busy summer so far! We sold out of peaches quickly last weekend but there are still more on the tree we will harvest tomorrow. I hope to have enough to fill the cooler again to put out on Saturday. Swing by early to make sure you get some before they are gone!

We still have two amazing lambs for sale from this year's crop. Both are Shetland black. One is a spot carrier and the other has UK genetics. Both are friendly and have spectacular conformation. I really can't find a fault with either of them. They will be both great breeding and fiber producing animals.

We also have put one moorit yearling ewe up for sale as well. Truffle will be ready for the breeding pen this fall. Her fleece is dense, butter soft and her friendly personality will make some hand spinner very happy! See our sale page for more detailed information on all 3 of these girls.

We have also been fortunate enough to purchase some new breeding stock from one of the best Shetland breeders in the country - Windswept Farms. We feel so lucky to have been able to add such beautifully conformed ewes to our flock! Each has a different lock structure and handle to their fleeces which makes them even more fun. Check out our flock page to see pictures and look for amazing lambs from them in 2017!

Peaches Anyone?

We are having a bumper crop of peaches this year! Unfortunatly we had to pick a little early since the branches are starting to weaken and break from the weight of all the fruit. They will ripen up nicely by the weekend.

We will have several bags of peaches available in a cooler out with the eggs this coming weekend. Some of the fruit is a little small, but this tree has never seen a pesticide.  The variety is New Haven. Come grab some while they last!
