On our 225-acre farm, we produce milk from our dairy sheep, which is made into award-winning cheeses, and we grow pasture-raised beef and lamb.  We are also home to a Belted Galloway cattle herd, sheep-guarding Maremma dogs, and a flock of parasite-controlling hens!  Admission to Open Farm Day is FREE.  So come visit us to see a beautiful working farm, have some good food,  get some animal time, and treat yourself to a chance to learn about farming, land stewardship, wool handling, dairying....
