As we close the door on 2020 and welcome in 2021, I pause to reflect on the year behind and the one to come. Although 2020 had it's challenges, here were so many positives for us. We made significant progress on farm projects including our living space, the horse barn, and sheep shelters. Finally all the sheep have shelter in their winter paddock. I sleep so much better at night!
We added new dogs including Zarra our Karakachan livestock guardian dog, again - I sleep so much better at night! Koda and Sophia found their way into our lives in 2020. After the loss of Angus I didn't think I could ever open my heart to a dog again and yet my shattered heart is whole and full again.
We greatly appreciate all of the help and support we received this year. It's been a challenging year for small businesses in general and we thank each and every person who supported us with a purchase. January 2021 marks a significant event for us as we will be opening our online farm store! I've been making soap like a madwoman to get ready for that. Please check back often to see what we have to offer. Once again, thank you to everyone and we wish you a magical 2021!
We added Clun Forest sheep to our flock which will add dairy as another product for us to sell. The farm had a good year - our sales are increasing every year and fiber remains our most popular product. Overall, we are happy with the progress we made this year.
