Our New Store is Open!

At our annual open house, we unveiled our new yarn store!

We got great coverage from the Hastings Star Gazette, and thank them for taking the time to visit us.  Their article spurred another article, with a slightly different focus, in the Minneapolis Star Tribune. Thanks to them as well, for their patience as we explained the somewhat foreign world of fiber farming.

Here are links to both stories:

Our store is open from 10-6 weekdays and 9-2 on Saturdays.  We have yarns, rovings, felts, socks, insoles, hats, scarves, and alpaca cookie cutters, as well as photograpy by Alan Boucher – something for everyone!

Welcome to our new Website!

Welcome to our new Website!

As we enter our 10th year of processing, we decided to revamp our website.

We’ve learned a lot, grown a lot, and changed a lot in the past 10 years and have added to our website to reflect that growth.   You’ll find more information on processing than ever, be able to track your order online, and see more photos of what goes on here.

Alan has also grown in his photography!  There are tons of photos of our farm animals, wildlife, raptors, and the ever-photogenic Bailey.  Alan has nature cards made from these photos for sale if any catch your eye.  Just ask!

Please take a moment to browse & let us know any thoughts you may have, and notify us of any errors you find.  As we all know, life is a work in progress!
