We just baled the last cutting of hay for the season. It is under cover. The equipment is being cleaned and repaired for storage until next summer.
Our young hens were added to the chicken pen where everyone is getting acquainted. We raised our own chickens this year. The farmer hatched our eggs in the incubator. The hens’ nests are all clean and refreshed with new hay.
The beekeeper has worked with our hives to prepare them for winter. The honey he processes from our bees always sells out early. We love the beekeeping and encourage others to take up the hobby.
The sheep were sheared in July so we are ready for the Fall and Winter. Some of the sheep need to be sheared twice a year and some once a year depending on the breed. Our beautiful sheep provide wool for the yarn, roving, socks, hats( newly added to the shop), felting fiber and wool top that our customers love so much. Our wool products are locally grown, dyed on the farm, processed in America (much of it in North Carolina) and ready for our customers to enjoy. We are continually adding new colors to our wide variety of products. We invite you to shop on our website and we will ship directly to your home or visit our Red Barn Studio to shop in person. Call for an appointment to set up a special time for you.
We have a Spin/Knit/Crochet In at the Red Barn Studio on the third Saturday of each month from 10 til 3 for a fiber sharing time. Come and relax with other fiber lovers. Shop our beautiful products and fiber tools. October 15th, November 19th and December 17th are the next scheduled events. Thank you for supporting our local business. It is a joy to share our love of fiber and farming with so many people.
