One Step Closer



We are one step closer to being able to process our wool. Mike found the last piece of equipment we need to get things up and running, a wool picker!

Unfortunately, it was in Maine, about a 15 hour trip one way! But, this kind of machinery is not something that is easy to find. So he jumped at the chance when he found this for sale. It was a rough trip but he made it home safe and sound!

We are now the proud owners of a 1914 Davis and Furber Wool Picker.
