Martha's Vineyard Fiber Farm

Martha's Vineyard Fiber Farm is one of my coolest finds on Etsy to date. Susan Gibbs is the wonderful Shepard of this amazing farm. She has started the country's first CSA (Community Shared Agriculture) for yarn. The way the program works; you purchase a share of the shearing. Either a spinner's share (which you know I am all over!!!) or a share of the yarn. This is the second time she has offered this program. The Fall Shearing is for kid mohair and goats. I am in love with her blog too. She keeps everyone updated on the happenings of the farm and all the new additions! This is a picture from a couple of new kids on the farm.

Please visit her website, blog, etsy store or if you have Ravelry...the Ravelry Group.

If you want to see more cute pictures: Check them out on Flickr.
I am planning on being a share holder for many years to come. Much love to Susan for sharing this amazing program with all up Little Bo Peep wanna-be's! ♥

Hi - my daughter bought a share and we're lucky enough to be going to the MV Fiber Festival on April 19th. Wish you lived closer to MV, it's going to be a lot of fun.
If you're interested in MV you can visit my blog MV it my most favorite place in the world.

I do wish I lived closer! I am not going to be able to make the festival this year, but I may be able to visit next summer. My Mom lives in Vermont,so the next time I go up for a visit, I am planning on swinging that way. Can't wait to check out your blog Joan!
