    A very interesting farm operation and business. Very friendly and helpful people. However, it was a Saturday, so the machinery was not in operation, so I will need to return on a weekday to see that.

    What a great experience! Kagan, our tour guide, took us through an amazing journey from raw wool to colourful socks. The equipment, the newest piece was 50 years old the oldest is well over 100 years old, was beautiful and well cared for. The wool was showed in several stages of processing to be finally transformed into products that were available for sale. The store was filled full of every colour of every type of yarn they made, plus kits and finished goods. Thank you for opening your farm to us, we had a blast.

    Friendly knowledgeable owners. Opened for the group at 9:00 am even though they understood that they were to open at 10:00. I would have liked to see the whole operation working but they only operate on weekdays. She did explain the history and operated the spinning mule for us. There were explanatory placards at the various equipment that was helpful and interesting, well-written and easily understood. My husband was mostly interested in the antique International pick-up and thoroughly enjoyed his chat with the owner.
