An Animal Powered Certified Organic Family-Operated "Forever Farm"
Wool and Wool Socks
Our wool is made from a small flock of Romney sheep we started 20 years ago so Kenya, my oldest daughter, could show them in 4H. Our sheep are known for their exceptional wool quality. We hand shear, and hand spin the wool, and hand dye with natural plant materials. Talk about manual labor! We sell the skeins of yarn and our own hand knit, wool socks.
Yarn is $14.00 for a 2 oz skein. Socks are offered in 2 sizes ladies 7- 9 or men’s 9-11
All sell for $45.00 per pair.
Special orders on sizes by request.
Each year we have 2 raw fleece panels to sell at $90.00 each. Let us know if you’re interested.
Stop by the farm for a slice of Miss Mary’s fresh Maine Blueberry Pie in the café and meet the sheep, grazing nearby. 2023 is a lambing year so come cuddle up with a baby lamb.
Here at Winterberry farm we take pride in showing you our farm, and how we live here. We welcome you to visit our farm, and ask only that you let us know you would like a guided tour in advance so we can be prepared to greet you. Click here to contact us. We will start you out with a tour of the barn and all the animals. Here is where you’re welcome to add to our “living wall loom,” using dried and live materials we have collected, you add something wherever you like, to our loom. The tour gradually progresses to our seasonal flower and vegetable gardens and our year round high-tunnels (unheated greenhouses). We welcome questions and if we plan ahead, can include a packed lunch and organize a work session following the tour. For Family tours plan for an hour; for groups plan for 2 to 3 hours. Cost for self guided tours is $5.00 per person (no need to let us know in advance). Cost for us to show you the farm is $50.00 for familys up to five or $10.00 per person for groups
