INTERESTED IN CARDED LINCOLN WOOL?
We recently received this message from a student in our area:
"Hi I am writing to see who would be interested in carded Lincoln
wool. I have eighteen Lincoln sheep, six of which are white, ten that
are colored black/grayish, and two that are pure black. These sheep I
am raising are for an FFA project at AFSA (Academy for Science and
Agriculture) the high school I am currently attending in Vadnais
Heights MN. I am in eleventh grade right now and I am just seeing who
might be interested in carded wool as I am trying to develop a
business with it. I have not done any carding yet I am just seeing
who could be possible customers, and see if there is a interest in
carded wool before I make investments. If you are interested have
questions, or want more information please feel free to e-mail me
If you would like to get in touch with the student, please contact us
at rhfarm@... and we will pass along your contact
PLANNING AHEAD FOR 2009
The first attempt at a Fiber Festival at Bonanzaville last July sure
seemed like a success when we were there, and it must have been
because they have already announced details for next year's event!
Fiber Arts Festival
Bonanzaville, West Fargo
Saturday and Sunday, July 25 & 26, 2009
10-5 Saturday, noon-5 Sunday
If you haven't been to Bonanzaville, it is worth the trip just to see
the museums and historic buildings.
