Tamarack Farm is located about 18 miles east of State College, PA, the location of Pennsylvania State University, in the beautiful Pennsylvania Appalachian valley and ridge region. Tamarack Farm covers about 26 hilly acres of pasture and woods just a few steps from Penns Creek, a well-known destination for fly-fishing. A long row of Tamaracks (Larix) grows on the hill as a backdrop to the farmhouse–hence the name of our farm. At Tamarack Farm Sheep & Wool we have been raising Icelandic (horned and polled) and natural-colored Merino Sheep for twenty-five years. We have a colorful Icelandic flock with a full range of patterns and colors. Our sheep are on pasture about 8-9 months per year, using management-intensive grazing techniques.Our flock is healthy (and happy!) with good parasite resistance. We are CLA, OPP and Scrapie free.
Dyeing and felting has captured Jan’s interest, and we work with our own wool as well as selling roving and yarn at our vendor’s booth at the Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival. We market breeding stock, wool, and wool products, particularly felt and felt crafts.
