Sustainability & Conservation

We are dedicated to responsible land stewardship and conserving land for future generations by implementing as many sustainable practices as possible. Practices that we are committed to include: regenerative farming, rotational grazing, conservation-focused land management, and minimizing our waste and chemical use. We also strive to be lifelong learners of new and innovative practices that enrich and heal the land. We specifically chose Shetland sheep as our focus because they are listed as "recovering" through The Livestock Conservancy and are a hearty, unimproved breed known for their wool quality.

Community

We care deeply about other people, especially our local community. We strive to be good neighbors by building relationships with our community members and offering accessible, reliable, and useful products to Vermonters and visitors alike. We also support causes we truly care about through whatever means we can, including donations in the form of time, money, or advocacy.

Animal Welfare, Health, & Care

We truly believe that our animals' health and happiness is directly linked to our own health and happiness as farmers. Our animals are our central focus on the farm, and their health and well being is paramount. We are committed to providing our animals the highest quality living conditions we can, whether that means improving pastures or building shelters, we believe a well cared for and loved animal is a happy one. We spend as much time out in the pasture or in the barn with our animals as possible, and we think they love it just as much as we do.

Hard Work

While neither of us grew up on a farm, we sought out the farm life for ourselves after our own individual experiences. Our deep connection to the earth, dedication to conservation, and desire to see the results of a hard day's work underpin our passion for this lifestyle. We want to leave the land better than we found it, and support our family and community through our work. While it may have been a long and winding road to discover our path, we believe that we have found our true passion.
