WOOL AND OTHER PRODUCTS DIRECTLY
 FROM THE FARM

Richards Family Farm - Lamb next to barn

Richards' family farm has been developing for over 35 years starting with improving the soil, planting trees and later adding the animals. Our philosophy from the beginning is to maintain, plant, raise and harvest as organically as possible by using complement planting, crop rotation and organic fertilizers. We are committed to raising fruits and vegetables without the use of pesticides. The poultry and sheep are raised without antibiotics, free ranged and pasture rotated.

We are members of the American Livestock Breed Conservancy and Society of Poultry Antiquities and believe in trying to preserve breeds that have demonstrated hardiness irrespective of the current commercial trends in livestock demands.

Wool and other products that we sell are from sheep we have carefully tended and the processing of fibers and wools are done in the best places we have found, Zeilinger Wool Company and Bucks County Fur.

Handspun wool is done in our home an an ASHFORD wheel in any spare time found when all the chores are finished.
