Farming isn’t a solo endeavor. We live in a vibrant farming community. If you like our farm, here are some other farms and businesses to check out:
We are members of the Bluefaced Leicester Union, the American Border Leicester Association, the Vermont Sheep and Goat Association where you can also view our listing, and we subscribe to the Shepherd, Sheep Magazine, and ASI. Locally, we belong to the Albany Community Trust.
My parents both do high-level handicraft. My mother owns Judith Sullivan Kiltmaker, her full time employment. My father is Sullivan Handweaving. He has woven some beautiful scarves using my yarn this year.
Our neighbors include the Craftsbury General Store, where I do much of my day-to-day shopping. They are a great source of local meat, dairy and produce and do a lot to engage and enhance the community. We’d be hungry and coffee-less without them.
We buy our milk from Sweet Rowen – it’s pure, whole milk from right around the corner that isn’t homogenized, and it makes our coffee divine. It feels good to know that our dairy farmer gets a fair price for the milk and isn’t relying on crashing bulk-sales prices.
Our sheep-farm friends are many: we love Stark Hollow Farm‘s tasty pork and their friendly kindness. We are pleased to know other farmers working with the same goals as ours. Tammy White at Wing and a Prayer Farm is a valued friend and fiber-guide. Mary Lake, my shearer, has provided more than her fair share of help and emergency support over the years. There’s be no farm without her. Our new neighbors include Tam at Wool and Feathers, Maria of Cate Hill Orchard, and longtime shepherd Larry Bohen from Larry Bohen Websolutions.
