If you’ve been looking for food with integrity, you have come to the right place. If you want wool, yarn and pelts that come from a place you can point to on a map, we are here for you. The farm where you buy your food is more than some buildings and some animals – It is your most direct connection to the soil and sunshine we all depend on. We started our farm project wanting to grow the food that nourished our ancestors. Now, we want to share the land’s richness with you.
Cloverworks Farm is a Vermont Sheep Farm and Homestead providing fine lamb, wool, yarn, pelts and more from our Registered Bluefaced Leicester and Border Leicester sheep. Our humanely-handled flock moves to fresh grass each day as part of their rotational grazing scheme. We also run Bobolink Yarns, a yarn company with the mission of transforming breed-specific New England wool into local fibershed yarns.
After several years of raising sheep on rented land, Cloverworks Farm moved to our own 63 acre farm in Albany, Vermont in 2017. We want to make sheep a sustainable, economically relevant force on the secondary soils of Vermont’s hilly, rocky landscape. Our goal is to create a sustainable farm where the best management practices result in healthy, happy sheep and delicious lamb. We believe it will be a challenge and intend to meet that challenge by raising our sheep to meet their economic potential. Our livestock projects also include chickens, geese and turkeys, with future plans for pigs and cattle.
Cloverworks Farm is the project of Katie Sullivan and Matt Wimmer. Katie brings experience raising all kinds of livestock, a passion for spreadsheets and rotational grazing knowledge. Matt loves tractors, technology, and hugging new lambs. We value collaboration and open sharing of information, so check back frequently to learn more about how we raise our animals.
