Earthsong Orchard Farm
Babydoll Southdown Sheep and Apples in Season
This winter in Wisconsin has been an extrodinarily robust, record breaking season. We, along with our sheep, who have been cooped up in the barn since December, long for green grass again. We took only six ewes through the winter, but are hopeful for a good crop of lambs in May.
We also haveBabydoll wool rovingfor sale in a variety of natural colors.
Welcome to Earthsong Orchard Farm Website. Our small organic farm is located in west-central Wisconsin not far from the Apple River, where we tend a small apple orchard and a large family garden, and also raise Old English Babydoll Southdown sheep, goats, chickens, ducks, and guinea fowl. During the growing season our animals are pasture raised in our orchard and small paddocks and fed certified organic feed, primarily from the Buckwheat Growers Association of Minnesota,and locally grown hay. In our gardens and orchard we follow sustainable organic practices.
For my wife, Mary Kay, and me, the farm is part of our working retirement. It is also our third venture into small scale homestead agriculture, the first starting over 40 years ago, .
Earthsong Fibers,our online fiberarts business, is an integral part of our homestead livelihood. It grew out of Mary Kay's long-time interest in the fiber arts and our previous experience as shepherds. We now offer wool roving from our Babydoll Southdowns Sheep on our companion site, www.earthsongfibers.com.
