SHETLAND SHEEP SINCE 2007
Our small family farm has been raising Shetland sheep for almost 15 years in the town of Plainfield, NH. We're captivated by their friendly and quirky personalities, as well as their beautiful fleeces. Our sheep have taught us life lessons and provided laughs along the way. The lambs born on the farm are raised by our five girls and travel to compete in local and national 4-H shows. We love Shetlands and you will too!
MORE ABOUT OUR FARM
Our sheep are pasture-raised with love in Plainfield NH. They have grown up alongside the girls and are well-socialized and friendly. We take great care to ensure their daily needs are met and that their fleeces are kept clean and beautiful year-round.
If you've never tried spinning with Shetland roving or knitting with Shetland yarn, you should give it a go! The abundance of long, crimped fibers in the soft fleece makes it a joy to spin and the variety of natural colors creates stunning yarn. Our yarns are the same color as the sheep who grew them, and they make warm and beautiful sweaters, scarves, hats, or other knitted projects! We also sell batt and pin roving, along with assorted wool products. Our roving is suitable for spinning or other uses including felting projects.
OUR QUALITY FLOCK
Not only are our sheep friendly and pretty to look at in the pasture, they have traveled to local and regional fairs in New England where they have earned awards for excellence in their breed. Pictured to the left is Bramble, one of our Shetland rams at the Big E Fair in 2017 with his Grand Champion Ram ribbon. His mother Dahlia was crowned Grand Champion Ewe at the Rochester NH fair two years running.
