The weather finally cooperated with me and with the help of a friend, I was able to catalog the remaining fleeces that are left to sell.
They are listed in an album on our farm’s Facebook page here.
If you do not use Facebook, you can still view the album and then contact me to make your purchase.
Now offering rug making services!
I can make “mock braided” rugs with your milled rug yarn. Below are two that I have completed for a client. These are reversible and measure approx. 32″ long by 22″ wide and used approx. 120 yards of alpaca rug yarn with a cotton core.

Whenever we ‘put up hay’, it spans several days and usually requires the assistance of several friends and neighbors. On the last evening of work, I usually make everyone dinner. Last night, I made one of my easy but yummy Taco Bakes but I wanted to make a light dessert also.
I found this recipe on my Facebook feed last week and decided to give it a try. I’m a big fan of Fried Ice Cream if it’s done well but lately I haven’t found any I would have again. This ice cream cake recipe has earned a spot in my recipe binder!
Give it a try and let me know what you think. Unless our guests were just happy to be done with hay, they seemed to like it too.
Have a great holiday weekend… be safe!
Straw bales are used for many things such as Fall harvest displays, winter bedding for livestock or pets, lawn care or even building a house.
We don’t have enough to build a house but we have approx. 500 oat straw square bales this year. Wholesale or retail pricing. Delivery charges are extra.

I’ve never had any luck with any flour and yeast combo to make any form of dough so when I found a recipe for pizza dough that uses self-rising flour, I couldn’t wait to try it.
I was not disappointed! It’s so simple too.
The recipe calls for 1 cup of plain yogurt mixed into 1 cup of self-rising flour with a little extra to dust your board when you knead and roll it out.
For me, I wanted a thick dough so I doubled the recipe and found that 2 cups of yogurt made the flour too moist so I’ll probably cut back to 1.5 cups next time as I tweak it to my liking.
Here is my masterpiece… I believe that I will be making more like this and bypass the frozen pizza section at the grocery store now.
I started a new group on Ravelry. I hope to make it a place where other fiber and yarn aficionados can share and learn from one another.
Tell your friends and join me there. You’ll see things there you won’t find anywhere else!

We carry Knit Picks Caspian ™ line of knitting needles and crochet hooks. They are made of strong layers of laminated birch in a sea-inspired colorway.
Knitters like them for their extra grip and perfect points. The smooth finish provides hours of comfortable knitting or crocheting allowing for precision control over each stitch.
The straight needles are smooth and slick to help increase knitting speed with less dropped stitches to contend with in you projects. The crochet hooks have slightly tapered throats and deeply grooved hooks especially helpful when working with handspun or art yarns.
