Sustainability

Dyers Wool consists of two small family farms, within minutes of each other, where we live and raise our animals and plants using water conservation and organic methods as much as possible.  We have a wonderful garden that provides plenty of fresh vegetables and fruit during the summer - enough to dehydrate, can, and freeze for the winter. We also enjoy fresh eggs from our free-range chickens. All the animals enjoy helping with weed and bug control.

We are very active in the sustainable agriculture community of the Four Corners region. Jim and Kelsey work with Farm to School programs, getting local and fresh food to schools in the area, as well as with several organizations, including Healthy Community Food Systems and the Southwest Marketing Network; both websites contain great information about sustainable food systems.  Jim helped start the Mesa Verde Country Guide to Sustainable Food and Fiber, a directory of producers in the Four Corners area.
