Our fiber animals don't just sit around looking cute all day, they're also busy making beautiful wool to keep us warm, cozy and comfortable too! Imagine a scarf or sweater made from one of these QTs here.
If you counted each individual animal on the farm as a year in your life, you'd be at retirement age and still counting. They put the QT in the farm, but most also have useful jobs to do - see their classifieds here.
We are located in the Sierra Nevada Foothills of Northern California, between Sacramento and South Lake Tahoe. Each season brings different wonders to behold. Check back as the photos change with the seasons. Please contact us with any questions.
Life without corgis? We think NOT! Our corgi companions enrich our lives in countless ways. Check out their antics here.
Using renewable resources for our energy needs is an investment that makes sense to us. In 2011, we swapped two heaters, two air conditioners & a hot water heater, and replaced them with compressors that run our geothermal system. A propane truck hasn't been to our place since we made the switch five years ago. Now all our heating and cooling is done by dirt instead of propane! It is very gratifying to be one less household dependent on fracking or other toxic method, to extract natural gas from the earth, for our comfort.
Our next big investment will be solar. We are looking forward to the day when all the resources we use to live come from the sun, dirt, wind, and underground streams. See more at www.sustainablefiberfarm.com (website forthcoming)
