  Mountainspun Farm is my dreams come true!
  Located in the Beautiful Mountains of Southern Vermont.
                                                                   
I am most grateful to my Creator for allowing me to live here 
and for allowing me to raise these wonderful animals! 
I am also grateful to Him that He has given 
me the skills to be able to create such works of art from their fibers.

A Bit about Mountainspun Farm:
 
At Mountainspun Farm we Selectively Raise Registered Shetland Sheep, 
Gorgeous Llamas, Angora Rabbits, and other exotic Fiber Animals.



My Grandmother taught me how to knit when I was a child.
Then, I put knitting away for many years 
Until I discovered my love for 
Hand Spinning my own Yarn and Weaving
As I worked on my BA In Fine Arts.

Mountainspun Shetland Sheep Were carefully chosen

for confirmation, NASSA Registration Standards,

Wool Quality, and Temperaments.

All Our sheep are exceptionally friendly,

Wool quality is premium,

As I am a master hand spinner and only raise the best.

Colors are varied among the 11 basic colors

of Shetland sheep.

Mountainspun Shetland's have various color markings

and color combinations.

Our Rams Have great horns,

soft dense wool,

and are very gentle and loving.

Our ewes are easy lambers.

Here we have lots of twin bearing sheep,

All our sheep come when called by name, enjoy human contact,

being petted, hugged and hand fed.

At this time we are not offering Shetland Sheep or Lambs for sale

If you are interested in our Fleeces or Fibers

Please email us with your name,

and the city, and state you are from

and include info on your preferences for color, quantity, and if you have purchased a fleece from us before and would like to purchase a fleece from the same sheep, let us know and if available we will gladly get that to you.

  Farm Policy regarding farm visitors: 

We are truly blessed to have what we have here, 
the mountains, the beautiful animals and 
the opportunity to live amongst them with the ones we love.  

We try to put up as many lamb, sheep, 
Bunny and farm related photos here as we can on our website,
And will gladly give you a phone call should you wish to 
Discuss purchases of any of our livestock. 


We value the health and safety of our family and animals 
We believe a CLOSED BIOSECURE FARM is the answer.

Please Note: Being a closed biosecure hobby farm, 
Our livestock, pastures, barns, and home
are not open to the public for any reason. 

Some Reasons we enforce a NO VISITORS policy:
It helps to keep any health threatening 
Bio-contaminants from being introduced to our livestock 

and grounds. Our "closed" policy also helps to provide security, Safety and privacy to our family members working and residing here. Not to mention,

We could not possibly accommodate the hundreds people

And families who regularly email us

Wanting to come visit here…

We are not licensed or insured to accommodate visitors. We are forbidden by our farm policy’s guidelines from allowing non family or non employees from entering our farm

The increase to our operating costs permitting visitors would ensue

and many other risks of allowing public access

Make us hosting visitors to our farm absolutely prohibitive.

Please understand

That in addition to our beloved Sheep

and Angoras, our human family resides here,

Our children play here.

Being such we do all we can to maintain The highest standards of Biosecurity to insure our animal's health,

Our family's safety and privacy

If you wish to know what bunnies are available to purchase, just email us. We will gladly let you know. If we have some that spark your interest, Please Don’t hesitate to ask us if we have photos we can email you. We don’t always have Photos of every bunny from every litter, but we try to- if our time and resources allow.

We thank you for your continued patronage. ____________________________________________ * Wondering Just what is Biosecurity??? Briefly it is biological/contagious disease control

that utilizes limiting visitors

To the premises including farm, barn/facilities, pasture, and by us monitoring standard hygiene procedures closely,

preventing access to visitors and by quarantining any new or returning animal from showing or veterinary offices,

Using biosecure shipping containers,

not allowing the mix of any

outside flock's animal's

or caretaker from multiple sources in the same airspace,

and using minimum 90-day quarantine procedures

for all livestock entering the flock. Screening should first be done to ensure

that contagions are not already present.

This involves collection of swabs, and stool samples for testing for viral shedding

and blood for virus-neutralizing

antibody to identify animals with previous viral exposure.
