Recently it has come to our attention that another wool vendor is following our business model, both in the pattern of our chosen ethics and by designing a website that can easily be confused with ours. While this IS America and we do enjoy the right of free enterprise, we are concerned because in this instance, the seller is claiming to be an ‘animal friendly farm’ when it truly is not, at least not in the sense that we are.

For clarification, the term ‘animal friendly’, in the case of Homestead Wool & Gift Farm means that our animals are safely grazing the rest of their lives away here at our farm, on pastures, never separated from their ‘families’ and friends. They are not eaten, sold, given away or allowed to have babies—unless they arrive here pregnant. They are part of our family and our biggest blessing. Their happiness and good care are our utmost concern. We are proud to be at the forefront of this new genre of fiber producers.

We have dedicated our lives to what we feel is an honorable and ethical animal rescue/sanctuary. We love our animals beyond words. As you are able to see by our very fair pricing structure, we are not in this for the money, but rather to find a way to keep our farm in business so that we may continue to provide shelter for the many animals who may otherwise not have a chance to live out the remainder of their lives in peace. For more information about us, please see Lexi Boeger’s new book ‘Intertwined’ or visit our site http://www.homesteadwoolandgiftfarm/.

We appreciate your support and want you to know that when you shop with us, you are, TRULY, supporting an animal friendly farm.
