FARM STORE Open starting Saturday June 6th, 2020


2020 has been a challenging year for many - and having a community behind you to support your small business and local farmers - is even more important moving forward.  As you can see from our events schedule below, we have experienced numerous cancellations of planned events - which are key to getting our products out to you.  On behalf of us and our Crew, we would like to say a BIG THANK YOU for all your kind words of encouragement during recent months.  For those who ordered products on-line - and took advantage of our custom milling and yarn/roving services many thanks.  Every little bit counts! 




Staying Safe During Your Visit

We are excited to announce we are planning for the re-opening of our farm store on weekends starting Saturday June 6th, 2020 at 10 am.  We will be open on Saturdays (10am - 4pm) and Sundays (10am - 3pm).

        *  Alpaca viewing only from the mill store observation deck.

The Silver Lining


It's a good thing yarn does not have an expiry date, as we have a store full of alpaca goodness (including rovings and other new items).   As always, we will have a Summer Gift Basket give away - every purchase has a chance to win - and these are always a crowd pleaser and worth over $150.00   


A final word, remember, if you do not see what you are looking for - just ask.  We offer custom yarn/roving order service for fibre enthusiasts - where you pick the blend and we custom made it just for you!
