(Efland,NC)We are a family-owned and operated small farm raising wool breed sheep, angora goats and angora rabbits in the piedmont area of North Carolina. Our philosophy is that the well being of the animals comes first. This is why we strongly emphasize preventive, low input approaches to animal health and offer a written guarantee on the health of all animals sold. Our goal is to produce food and fiber in as sustainable a manner as possible. To this end, our aim is a pasture-based system of management for our sheep and goats. We practice integrated parasite management, i.e. managed grazing, use of the FAMACHA system to determine when to treat for parasites, use of organic wormers whenever possible and use of synthetic wormers only when absolutely necessary. Our rabbits, sheep and goats are never treated with hormones and antibiotics are only used to treat actual illnesses based on veterinary advice. Our manure management plan consists of both conventional composting of sheep and goat manure/hay and vermicomposting of rabbit manure.\ We offer quality Jacob and Shetland sheep, colored angora goats and German, German crossbred and French Angora rabbits for breeding stock or fiber-producing companions. We also sell roving for spinning and felting as well as a variety of yarns made from the fibers of the animals we raise.
