Rancho Descansamos was started in 2004 in Wells, Vermont. We are a three-generational family, some of whom are from Mexico. We raise a variety of goats, including pygmys, angoras, and several adoptees who are living out their natural lives with us as pets. We have other barnyard animals as well.
We raise the angora goats for their fiber and sell it as rovings, as well as the fleeces from a neighbor's Romney sheep. All of the animals enjoy the lush summers in Vermont where they are able to graze in the pastures of our farm. We grow our own hay and supplement with alfalfa and grain in the winter.
If you would be interested in the raw fiber of any of our animals, contact us in early March or early September.
Shearing is coming up April 19! The girls are ready to be rid of their blinders that catch all the snow ;)
We were vacationing in Vermont and contacted Lisa about visiting the farm. We thought it would be fun to see the goats and meet the creators of our fiber.... [more]
I love working with their wool! And the spinning kits are wonderful gifts!

I purchased a raw shetland fleece from Rancho Descansamos last week. I was impressed with how quickly they responded to my order and shipped the fleece.... [more]
