Henny Penny Farm is both a working farm and a teaching farm, educating hundreds of children and families about our food system and our ecosystems. We raise a flock of Romney Sheep that regularly lead their classes at shows for both their fleeces and their structural correctness. We practice regenerative agriculture and have been the recipient of USDA grants for our environmental stewardship. The results of the care we put into tending our soils can be tasted in our meat and seen in our fleeces. We match each individual fleece to its best end use, whether it be knitting yarn, woven items like scarves and blankets, or knitted hats and socks. We also have a flock of dorset and commercial crosses and we use their wool for a multitude of projects from stuffing our wool pillows to rugs. All of our wools are either undyed or dyed by hand here on the farm with plants. We also raise nubian dairy goats and use their milk in a variety of soaps designed with both use and aesthetic in mind.
