Some bold steps were needed to rethink what to do with the wool from the sheep they raise on their 30,000 acre ranch in Eastern Oregon. Their solution? Direct, value-added marketing to yarn retailers and apparel designers. This is the first in a series of how-to videos funded by the Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education (SARE) program and produced by Cooking Up A Story. SARE is pleased to be part of this cooperative venture, and to share the rich heritage, knowledge, and individual stories of some of our past farmer grant recipients. As Jeanne Carver notes in the video, SAREs Farmer Rancher Grants program provided critical assistance for them as they embarked on a new marketing approach.

    I'm with faylinameir. The packaging looks like the same stuff they use for our comforters. Cut the packaging in half and be more green friendly.

    Wonderful! I was beginning to worry that you processed and dyed the wool yourself. I checked out your website and got the answer. Lovely wool. I'll pass this on to my local knitting shop in case he'd like to carry your product.
    What lovely, sweet-faced sheep you have!
