February on the Farm

While winter may seem like a time of rest, the farm stays busy year round. Lambing has begun. Moms and lambs are getting acquainted. The fields are resting during lambing so the grass will be fresh for spring and summer. The farmer is busy planning his garden for this year. We use the sheep mulch on the garden for fertilizer so that will need spread on it soon.

Our Spring begins with Carolina FiberFest March 10 and 11 at the NC State fairgrounds in the Expo Building. The website has all the info for workshops, vendors, competitions, demos, speakers, fleece sale and used equipment sale. www.carolinafiberfest.org. Check it out and plan your fiber adventure. Join the fun and relax with other fiber lovers. See you there!
