About Us

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.

If you didn't brave the weather to come to last week's festival, but still want a festival t-shirt, you're in luck. Our online store at is being restocked with 2022 merchandise and should be ready by Monday, May 16, 2022 (they just need a little time to unpack the boxes that came back from the festival and see what's what). If memory serves, they will have two colors of short sleeve tees, a long sleeve tee, hats, aprons, fleece vests, sling bags and cinch sack/backpacks. Sorry, the large canvas tote bags are all gone.The online store is at www.sheepman.com/product-category/maryland-sheep-wool-festival-online/. You can also purchase these items in person at the Ceresville New Holland, Inc./Sheepman Supply Co. showroom in Frederick, Maryland. #mdsw2022 #festivalgear ... See MoreSee Less

If you or anyone else receives an email claiming to be able to sell you a list of attendees of the Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival, please ignore it as IT IS A SCAM. It has come to our attention that companies are emailing some of the Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival’s exhibitors and attendees, claiming to offer our attendee email list. This is a common occurrence with large conferences and trade shows in recent years.It is our policy to NEVER sell, rent, or share attendee contact information. No company is authorized to distribute or sell any email lists of Festival attendees. The Festival is not providing this list nor generating these messages. How did they get your email? Software programs can crawl websites in search of email addresses that are listed on them (identifiable by the @ sign).If you receive an email offering to sell you a list of Festival attendees, do not respond to it. By responding—even with a request to unsubscribe—you confirm that your email address is a valid one, which may increase the likelihood that you’ll be contacted again. ... See MoreSee Less

This little lost lamb kid's mitten was turned in to the Lost & Found and would like to find it's mate. There is also a handmade shawlette someone might be missing, along with the usual random assortment of items -- reading glasses, etc. -- and, no surprise, a folding umbrella and a pair of rubber boots. Message me or email if any of these sound like they might belong to you, or if there is something else you would like me to check for. #mdsw2022 #lostandfound ... See MoreSee Less
