About Us

Welcome to Flying Goat Farm. We are a small family farm located on 25 acres in Frederick Maryland.

Being a maker is integral to my being. I have always loved working with thread and cloth. As an adult I knew that I wanted to start making my own cloth and so learned to weave. I learned to dye in 1990. In the ensuing years, I learned to spin and knit as well as teaching others to embrace their own creativity with textiles, yarn and fiber. I dye nearly every day. It is my passion. I love to put colors together that are harmonious, that excite the eye and that are really fun to work with. I am passionate about helping fiber enthusiasts put together colors that will create beautiful projects.

When we moved here, 17 years ago we decided to get some angora goats so that I could spin their fiber….but also because they are undeniably the cutest of ALL fiber animals. We added fine wool sheep 8 years ago. Since then we have been making our own farm yarn. We have yarn for every project whether you are looking for a worsted for a soft squishy blanket or a more rustic wool yarn for a warm and durable sweater. In fact, I am currently working to build a line of yarn that is Fibershed compliant. That means that it is grown, processed, spun and dyed within 150 miles of our farm. Our farm is also mostly solar powered. So if you are interested in reducing your carbon foot print and increasing the sustainability of what you purchase, we have the yarn for you.

When not in the dye studio or out with our sheep and goats, you can find me in the kitchen making delicious food or binge watching travel shows to calm my adventurer’s spirit. We are committed to helping to feed our community.

Until we meet in person or virtually, Happy Making!!
