I’m Barb Thaler. My husband and I started as volunteers while accompanying our daughter Rose for her SSL hours. It’s an outdoor family outing where we meet folks who share the love of the farm, work hard, and feel good about what we’ve learned and accomplished.

12-4 at the farm. We’ll be shearing our sheep and llamas and talking about fiber! You can see the wool as it comes freshly off the animals, learn about skirting, sorting, and see what harvesting wool is all about. Gift shop will also be open. Free, and open to the public!
Plan early for 2014: Come on out to see us at our major on-farm events!
