"Reedy Fork Farm offers a wide variety of organic feed, including organic sheep feed, the feed of choice for Stoney Mountain Farm. Stoney Mountain has seven pastures on 60 acres of land in Burlington. Their livestock is mainly Navajo Churro sheep, an endangered breed that produces wool, meat, and milk. You're probably familiar with their popular Eco-Friendly Wool Dryer Balls. You might not know about their other products: pet toys, felting kits, and yarn. And they have wonderful meat! All of their products come from their very well fed sheep. They sell their products on their website, on Facebook, and at Durham and Greensboro Curb Farmer's Markets. People love buying from John and Olga because they know they are helping the environment. Their wool isn’t processed with chemicals and is USA all the way! Olga told us, ""I had someone squeeze our wool once and comment 'healthy sheep!' It’s so true, healthy products meat or wool, are solely dependent on what they consume and the environment in which they’re raised...We have seen first hand the impact of quality products on our animals."" We're proud to have John and Olga as our customers, and encourage you to visit John and Olga on their website or in person!
Olga shared this fun fact: Our pastures use 48” graduated woven wire as predator fencing everywhere. Predators (mostly domestic dogs) are a huge reason why folks don’t farm sheep. We currently use llamas as our guard animals. It seems to be working! :)
