Dyers Wool originally consisted of two small family farms, within an hour of each other. We have consolidated into one three-generational farm 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 (that website contains great information about sustainable food systems). For over 25 years, Jim has been involved in numerous sustainable agriculture projects throughout the local Four Corners area, as well as nationally.
