Farming has a lot to do with planning for the future while making the most of today. It was 3 years ago that our sheep were first sheared, here on Blooming Joy Farm. It was 8 months ago that I skirted 55 pounds of accumulated wool to prepare it for the upcoming processing of spinning wool to yarn. To turn a raw material into a beautiful product that you can be really proud of is something that I have just experienced. A few weeks ago I got the call from the Wool Mill in Belgrade, MT that my yarn was ready to pick up. To say I was excited to finally arrive at this place in our farm dreams and goal is an understatement.
Springtime On The Farm
We are on the count down with the last two ewes to lamb. The field is full of bouncing, wooly babies. Who needs any other type of entertainment when you have lambs full of shenanigans all day long?! I feel humbled and blessed to be the shepherdess of this flock. They know my voice as I call them in the morning with a “hey girls”!
