Adopt a Sheep
We hear from people all the time who would love to live on a farm and raise their own sheep, but, for whatever reason, it isn't possible. This inspired us to start our own Adopt a Sheep program! It’s like having your own sheep, but you don’t have to go out on those cold winter days to feed them!
Sheep Available for Adoption
How It Works
The adoption lasts for one year from the start date. During this time you will receive updates on what is happening here on the farm. Your adoption fee includes your sheep's story, 6 notecards with your sheep's picture, newsletters, and the fleece from your adopted sheep. We try to make sure you receive about 3 pounds of washed fleece. In the rare case that your sheep does not produce 3 pounds, we will either add the same type of wool fleece from a different sheep or make arrangements to provide you with additional fleece of another type. Your raw wool fleece will be washed and mailed to you, all included in the Adopt a Sheep fee. This makes a wonderful gift for the hard to buy for hand spinner or fiber artist, a 7th year anniversary gift of wool, and not to mention a great gift for yourself!
If you would like to receive ready-to-spin wool rovings, we will be glad to have your fleece carded at the local mill. There is an additional mill fee, $40. Please add the milling fee to your cart with the adoption for this option.
Not sure who to select? Contact us and tell us about what type of projects you have in mind and we will help you select your Adopt a Sheep to get just the right one.
We are always happy to set up a visit to our farm, we ask that you make arrangements ahead of time so that we are able to give our undivided attention to making your visit enjoyable.
