Master List Livestock- COMING SOON
There's a lot of record keeping where livestock are concerned. Births, deaths, litter size, certified through this or that program, vaccinations, vet visits, tests, problems, sales, purchases, pedigrees, tatoos/tags, how much product from the animal in a year, etc. It can be dizzying mind field keeping track of it all when you have multiples of animals on the homestead. Most homesteads have multiple animals. Even though we are small, we have chickens, meat rabbits, and angora rabbits. Soon we'll be adding dairy and meat goats into the mix.

The record keeping alone is one big paper chase when dealing with a myriad of livestock. How would you like a program that takes the hassle out of this task? Livestock Master List is the answer. Coming soon!

Our yarns- Depends on the number of plys and weight. On average, our spun yarns start at $12 an ounce for blends and upwards of $120 an ounce for beaded art yarn. All our dyes are naturally sourced, plant based dyes. Dye lots are usually about 3 ounces of spun yarn. Larger lots available with time and request. Normally, we spin yarns from late fall and winter and sell our production all year around.

Plarn- Is made from recycled grocery bags and other plastic products. We spin ours for a more uniformed for crocheting and knitting. One lady even does macrame projects with our plarn.  We tend to spin this during spring and summer months for sale. Or, crochet or knit it into beach and grocery bags for personal use or sale. We don't want to spin fiber in 100 degree weather with no air conditioning. Our plarn varies in color tan, white, grey, and blue or combination thereof. It sells for $6 for 50 yards, $11 for 100 yards. The merchandise sells by size. Please inquire with the contact form.

Angora Rabbits
Cockeyed Moira-NFS

Our rabbits are fed grain fodder (a mixture of wheat, oats, barley and black oil sunflower seeds) and wild grasses and plants on our property. They get free choice of Orchard and Timothy hay all day long (organically grown on our property). As a treat, they are given home dried papayas, raisins, cranberries, blueberries, and black oil sunflower seeds in moderation during grooming. During winter, they are fed commercially prepared pellets without animal fats. Pregnant and nursing rabbits are fed alfalfa hay also for milk production.
