Sat/Sun March 10-11, 2018
11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Our annual CABIN FEVER events are just the venue you may need! Visit the farm and bring a wheel/knitting/crochet project and join other crafters in the farmhouse kitchen. (Snacks welcome!!) Of course, a trip to the yarn and fiber barn might be necessary! We are celebrating a milestone this year as Rainbow Fleece Farm was homesteaded on March 4th, 1978!!! Our imagined rainbow of natural colored sheep is now reality and they provide the wool for our many products. Dreams really do come true!!
