About Us

Henny Penny Farm is both a working farm and a teaching farm, educating hundreds of children and families about our food system and our ecosystems. We raise a flock of Romney Sheep that regularly lead their classes at shows for both their fleeces and their structural correctness. We match each individual fleece to its best end use, whether it be knitting yarn, woven items like scarves and blankets, or knitted hats and socks. We also have a flock of dorset and commercial crosses and we use their wool for a multitude of projects from stuffing our wool pillows to rugs. All of our wools are either undyed or dyed by hand here on the farm with plants. We also raise nubian dairy goats and use their milk in a variety of soaps designed with both use and aesthetic in mind.

How to Shop

With the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival being virtual again this year, I decided to take the spring off from the Pottery studio. Shipping large amounts of pottery is so extremely impractical for me. Seriously, it is a whole other job! I have built my business for over 30 years on the ‘feel of the pot’ in my customer’s hand. Regrettably I cannot successfully choose your prefect pottery mug. I am extremely hopeful that we will return to a more normal lifestyle by the fall of this year. Be safe! Be Well!

About Us

We are a small family farm located south of Westminster, MD, about an hour west of Baltimore. Our land was the nucleus of a much larger tract that has been worked for over 200 years.

The original land-grant, Upper Marlboro, was deeded in 1763 by Lord Baltimore to Robert Gilchrist. The first cabin was built before 1798. We have been working to restore our small ten acre parcel since 1983 when my husband and I moved to Westminster. Over the years we have renovated the original log cabin, stabilized the bank barn, cleared fence lines, built new fence, built a shop and on and on.

Hill Farm is home to Norwegian Fjord Ponies, Leicestershire Longwool sheep, various birds, dogs, cats, and chickens. Products of the farm include yarn, fleece, roving, sheepskins, lambs, handwoven blankets, and woodworking products.

From beginning to end, our yarn is 100% Maryland local and responsibly made. We raise our sheep here on Hill Farm and provide them with quality living conditions and love. Our shearers, dye makers, and spinners are all local to the area. Everything we create here on Hill Farm is handmade by Gwen Handler.

Larry Fisher is an expert craftsman and has been working with wood for over 30 years. Larry has taken on the sole responsibility of restoring most of the original structures at Hill Farm. Larry focuses on lamps, wooden vessels, boxes and small wooden pieces. What makes Hill Farm’s woodworking unique is the traditional method which is used to produce Larry’s lamps and woodworking. While it may be tempting to upgrade to larger, faster, and more technical machinery, Larry still uses tried and true methods and tools to create each piece by hand. What makes Larry’s work unique is the care and thought he puts in to every part of the project from wood selection to choice and balance of the parts and the final construction of the object.

Raising lambs, foals, puppies, chicks, ducks, and kittens are all wonderful experiences to be a part of. We find this lifestyle, not necessarily easy but always rewarding. I can’t think of a better place to raise a child. Being in touch with the land, the animals, and the seasons give life a true sense of purpose.

About Us

Many of you already know us as HEIRLOOMS, which is our business name.

Our web site www.scandinavianweaveandknit.com features some of our Hand Woven & Hand Knit finished items. Color & texture is what motivate us.

We’ve been on the road going to sheep & wool festivals, arts and crafts shows, and farmer’s markets since 1999.

Maybe we’ve seen you in the Adirondacks or at one of the many sheep and wool festivals, such as Rhinebeck or Maryland, where we’ve been selling our hand dyed yarns since 2008.

With many requests to buy our hand dyed yarns on line we’ve created www.yarnhygge.com to feature some of our yarns, plus Lis’s Knitting Patterns.

“Hygge” is a Danish word best described as a feeling of coziness.

Lis grew up in Denmark. She and her girlfriends would get together – next to the fireplace – drinking tea or coffee and enjoying a few goodies, while they each would work on their projects. Telling stories, sharing family patterns, getting inspired, and teaching each other new techniques. Very “Hyggeligt”!

We hope you enjoy our yarnhygge web site and find something to make your life a little more “hyggeligt”!

Our inventory is constantly changing. Feel free to contact us at any time, if you do not find what you are looking for. Our show inventory is separate from our web inventory.

Some of the fibers we carry are: BFL, Silk/Merino/Seacell, Yak/Silk/Merino, Organic Merino, SW Merino, Camel & Silk, 100% Silk, Swiss Silk, Mulberry Silk, Merino & Cashmere, Merino/Cashmere/Silk, Baby Alpaca, Alpaca & Silk and various other fine fibers, plus Romney lambswool from our friend Janet Schrader’s flock.

We have all weights from cobweb to bulky.

Happy Knitting!

Mike & Lis

PS: We also use our fibers for weaving, mainly scarves and shawls. Feel free to let us know if you need help with setting up for weaving with our yarns.

About Us

Haulin’ Hoof Farm is a small family business located in the hills of southeastern Ohio. Our focus is on creating handcrafted, natural, and unique items. We offer goods made from wood, wool and clay.

In the making of our products we strive to utilize as much of what we produce & harvest ourselves here on our farm. Most of our woolen goods are made from the fleeces of our flock of organically raised sheep, and the wood we use comes from our farm or woodlands within a 50 mile radius – responsibly harvested, by us, with the health of the forest ecosystem as top priority. In our harvesting of trees we follow the “worst first” method, taking out dead trees or those that have been damaged by insects, disease, or lightning. As a result, many of our wood products come with unique character such as spalting. Furthermore, only natural oils and beeswax are used to finish our wood products, preserving the inherent, natural beauty of the wood.

All our ceramic goods such as buttons and planters are made by the girls on our farm with a lot of love and enthusiasm. We never use ceramic decals or transfers, so every piece we create is one-of-a-kind. We hope you enjoy, as much as we do, the natural beauty and quality craftsmanship you’ll find in all our products!
