We started Woolweaver Farms on a basis of love. The farm is not just based on a love for each other, but also a love for nature, wildness and wilderness, animals, weather, history, conservation, preservation, and above all simplicity. We look forward to each new day, expecting nature to amaze. In the spring we see blossoms, the summer brings fawns and vegetables, the fall shows it color and the winter sometimes drapes us in brilliant whiteness. Our livestock, the horse, chickens and Tunis sheep, bring daily excitement. Feedings, pasture rotations, health checks and egg collection allow us to interact with our animal friends on a daily basis. Every day brings new opportunities to restore our 100 year old farmhouse, fix a tractor or repair a fence or barn. As we try to lead a simple life, we are always busy with chopping wood, cutting hay, cooking over an open fire or gardening. We are grateful for our land and we work hard to improve it. We are preserving the native landscape by planting trees, building ponds to control run-off and have brought bees onto our farm to help improve the pollination of our apple trees and surrounding area.
This farm is a wonderful place. Some days may be filled with the smell of diesel fuel and the squish of mud underfoot. Other days are filled with midnight walks to the barn to check for lambs in freezing weather. Those days are few and are balanced with the sight of a fawn, the birth of a lamb or the rising of corn in the garden. All our days are filled with blue West Virginia skies, green pastures and love.
