Earthsong Orchard Farm
We had a small number of Babydoll Southdown rams lambs and wethers for sale this year, but retained our little ewes as we are still building our flock.
We also have washed and picked Babydoll fleeces for sale by the ounce and by the pound.
Welcome to Earthsong Orchard Farm. Our small organic farm is located in west-centralWisconsin not far from the apple river, where we have work a small apple orchard and a large family garden and 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 venturei nto 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 fleece from our Babydoll Southdowns Sheep on our companion site, www.earthsongfibers.com.
