Spoon Mountain Farm is an example of a micro forest farm where Alpaca live and produce beautiful natural fiber which is used to create amazing roving, and yarn. The yarn is hand dyed here. It is possible to schedule a learning session for fiber dying and instruction in needle felting and the use of a drop spindle. In the past we’ve had a herd of Angora goats and German Angora Rabbits. We anticipate new bunnies arriving later in the season.
We have three different examples of gardens where seasonal vegatables typically grow from late May into October. A flock of one rooster and an assortment of seven hens provide plenty of colorful eggs for the table.
Additionally, Spoon Mountain Farm is an Airbnb travel destination. Look for Tiny Cabin on a Forest Farm in Meadows of Dan, VA. We also host creative arts events
Spoon Mountain Farm has been providing WWOOFers (World Wide Opportuinities for Organic Farmers ) a destination and chance to learn about small sustainable living and animal care since 2009.
There’s lots going on, so check back often.
