Our farm, located on the Pemaquid Peninsula in Midcoast Maine, is home to a variety of critters. For the past 12 years our farm was home to a flock of Coopworth, and Coopworth/Border Leicester X sheep, as well as Zorro the guard llama and a mini donkey, Jingle. This past spring we decided to just continue on with our LaMancha dairy goats. We enjoy their milk and make great soaps and cheese from their bounty! Our remaining sheep have moved on to other farms in the Midcoast area.

We are members of Maine FiberArts. Come and visit us; we are open by chance or appointment. Calling ahead of time will make sure that we can connect with you. We have retail lamb cuts and specialty sausage as well as raw fleeces, roving and yarns, many of which are hand-dyed on the farm. Call us for more information. We maintain a tested and closed OPP, CL and CAE negative flock/herd.
