In the rolling hills of the North Carolina Piedmont we run a vegetarian farm raising a mixed flock of Dorset, Corriedale and the rare breed Jacob sheep for fiber and Nigerian Dwarf Dairy goats for goat milk soaps. On our website you can read about the ethical principles we use to run our farm from the stewardship of the land to no stress shearing. We have a yearly Adopt A Sheep program for spinners. Pictures of each sheep and his or her fleece is on the website to help you decide which sheep you'd like to sponsor. The program runs from March to March, with 6 email letters going out to keep you up to date on the flock news with lots of sheepy photos.
We also have an Adopt a Goat program, like the Sheep program you receive 6 email newsletters about what's going on around the farm with lots of pictures. A dozen bars of soap will be your souvenir of your time with us. Sponsorship of the sheep and goats are how we help pay for the feed and hay.
Handspun yarns and handwovens are other offerings of Little Meadows Farm. I'm happy to do special commissions whether a few yarn skeins for that special heirloom handknit or a handwoven piece. My wovens can feature not only our wools but also the wonderful bamboo and soy silk yarns which continues my goal to be not only green but cruelty free.
Handspinning and weaving classes are available, just email.
If you are thinking of someday starting a small farm we also run a 3 day to 1 week Mentorship Program, please email for more information.
Farm visits can be arranged by appointment and we do small school groups too.
