Fiber Farming in Southern Vermont

Wing and a Prayer Farm is a happy place to live and grow.  On our 20 acre Fiber Farm in Southern Vermont, we raise and care for a variety of poultry, Registered Shetland, Cotswold & Merino sheep, Registered Angora Goats, Alpacas, an American Guinea Hog named Princess Peppermint, bunnies, horses and ponies, dairy goats and honeybees.  Our farm, in the Green Mountain State, is a beautiful pastoral homestead where the children have grown up barefoot and the pups can run around without a leash.

We are grateful to be able to farm in Vermont and enjoy all that this part of the world has to offer.  Preserving the farming history in New England & the beautiful mix of fields, forests & mountains is important to us in addition to supporting healthy, nutritious, organically & naturally grown and raised food & fiber.

    can you call me about my pear glut…I have tons & I am considering canning some& freezing the rest..got any tips?..If I was hoping to make into pies later, would 4 cup portions be appropriate?
    I also have a gallon of pear juice to poach in..great day to cook!.christy

    ps :would you like to sample a slightly later (sweeter) batch of cider for our barter deal..
    I’d like to trade you ten 1/2 gallons@40.00total

  3. Tammy, Thank you so much for taking time out of your busy schedule to show us how to make the pin cushions. I would have gladly spent the day felting and chatting with you and Mel.

    • You’re welcome, Sue. I’m so happy we had that little special time together with Casey & Mel. Anytime you’re in town, let’s see if we can get you to the farm!

  4. Hi Tammy,
    Many thanks for your generosity today with your time and delicious food! Entertaining our extended family of 9 was no small task! You exude such a love for what you do that one cannot help but be inspired. Hoping to see you and the new “babies” in May/June.

    Manuel Family (Joe, Hope, Katie & Matt)

    • Thank you for the note, Hope! It was such an honor & pleasure to have you all here, felt like a celebration! Yes, let’s make sure you get here to see babies in the late spring/summer!

  5. I have been following your farm on IG and subscribe to your blog and really enjoy seeing all that you do. I am looking forward to coming to visit and participating in one of your events. Do you have a calendar of events set up? I know you are having the poems and pie this Friday but wondering what else is planned that I can come to since I don’t think I can get there this Friday. (I’m 4 hours away!)

    • Hi Pat: Thanks so much for the follow, for the support. I would love to have visitors from as far away as you come from, understandably you need a heads’ up! I know there are a couple of pottery workshops on the schedule that are being offered by Kristen Blaker (www.kristenbstudios.com) for the summer/September. I am planning some down time for July & August for my own offerings so that I can do more with my family, even if I am hosting events that someone else is organizing. For the fall I have a wool workshop being planned that will be a 3.5 day event. I am still putting the dots on i’s and crosses on t’s before I announce it – the week of September 20, 21, 22 & 23. I will have housing for people to sleep over and we will be learning to spin and make hooked rugs. I will post asap. I am also in the process of a newsletter as well as a calendar.
      Have a wonderful day!!
      -Tammy
