Welcome to The Flying Goat Farm!

We are committed to bring you great yarn that you can use to create your dream garments or fine home textiles. We strive to rock your world with color. We are always on the lookout for interesting color combinations and consistently experimenting with new dye techniques, so that your knitting experience will be taken to the next level. It was not enough to just dye commercial yarn, we design our own yarns with specific purposes in mind. We became Maryland fiber farmers, in order to control the entire process. We bought our first Angora goats in 2005, then added fine and longwool sheep in 2009. At this time, we sell commercially milled and locally milled, hand-dyed yarns and spinning fibers.

We also offer weaving, spinning and dyeing classes so that you can achieve your creative dreams. From time-to-time, we are asked to help new fiber farmers who want their own fiber flocks, as a result we offer animal care classes.

All done!

All done!

 

 

Today we have 25 acres, 100 fruit and nut trees, dozens of blueberry bushes and raspberry canes. We have 70-something chickens, 3 roosters, 9+ guinea fowl, 24 goats, 24 sheep, 3 cats and 4 dogs. We also have off-farm jobs. People wonder how we do it all! Right now, the farm is the 2nd or 3rd job for each of us.  But it is such a joy to come home after a long day and feed some goats, collect some eggs, pull some weeds, dye a pot of yarn and breathe the fresh air all around us. And most importantly, I create nearly every day.
