  • Description

    Description

    We have a small hobby farm with fibre animals such as cashmere goats and a sheep. We process some of the fibre ourselves by doing some spinning and felting.
    In our yarn shop you can find yarn and knitted items and other accessories. On our farm you will also find a maple tree grove and lots of walking trails.
    If you want to be in nature, here is the place to be.
    We also have a small home business. We fabricate circular sock knitting machines and parts and ship them worldwide.
