Red Creek Farm
Potter Valley, CA
Article on the Blog A Homespun Homestead
Nestled along the rolling hills at the north end of Potter Valley, Red Creek Farm specializes in a unique four-way cross bred sheep: Cormo x Lincoln x Merino x Wensleydale. The result is a remarkably long, strong, lustrous, and soft wool especially desirable amongst handspinners. The wool is a regular winner at fiber shows, such as Black Sheep Gathering and California Wool & Fiber Festival (a national competition).
From Peggy Agnew and Jonathan Whipple, Owner/Operators: “We are a small family-run sheep farm in Mendocino County, specializing in fine handspinning fleeces. Tucked away in a corner of Potter Valley, California, our flock of over 30 sheep spends its summers on irrigated clover pasture, winters on grass and alfalfa hay, and springs ranging in the hills. ”
