What's New? Lots! July 10 2016
Wow, it's been a long time since our last blog post. Sorry about that, but we've been just a little busy. Most of you probably have seen the news on our Facebook feed, but last year the Reeder family part of Dyers Wool moved to a new farm. It's about 45 minutes from the Dyer family farm, southeast of Durango. There was a nice house, but no farm infrastructure so we have been busy building barns and fences, planting trees and gardens, and just generally working our tails off. This move required both the Dyer and Reeder families to manage with not only a household but a farm to move.
First thing first, we built a nice big chicken coop.
Then we built a sheep shed. Obviously we were racing the weather.
We had one of the biggest winters we've had in quite a few years. That was challenging, but nice to see the moisture.
We managed to sneak over to SW Utah to enjoy some adventures before spring got into full swing.
It's amazing country.
We ordered in 20 new chicks to boost our egg production.
We're using electric netting for now.
Another set of cute black lambs this year. This is Ramsey.
All in all, we feel very blessed in our new home.
This year's wool has just returned from the mill and we have several new products to share with you soon, so follow us on Facebook for timely updates and I'll try to keep the blog updated.
Thanks for reading - take care!
