farm & fibre Mill
"Then one day, when you least expect it, the great adventure finds you"
"Goodbye 2020, Hello 2021!"
We would just like to say "Goodbye 2020, Hello 2021". This year marks our second full season we are open for business. Our alpaca blend yarns and rovings are gaining popularity with customers coast to coast. Yarn & roving production is underway in the mill as we speak, as we prepare for our spring launch. Our creativity doesn't stop there, plans are currently underway to offer a variety of fibre workshops through our new addition Studio65. Of course, we are still keeping our fingers (& toes) crossed we will be able to re-initiate small group tours this season. Of course a day on the farm means always planning ahead for our hay and fibre harvest which are underway as well. Scroll down for more inform on upcoming events.
