What we do:
We breed and raise Pygora goats and French Angora rabbits for their wonderful fiber. We are presently working on becoming a Heritage Farm consisting of a variety of chickens and heritage turkeys.
I am no longer concentrating on the breeding of Pygora goats. I will keep my goats with the best fleeces and enjoy them and the spinning of that glorious fiber!
We decided on the French Angora rabbits due to the guard hair that is in the FA fiber. This guard fiber is the "bloom" that makes the angora yarn so exciting. The guard hair also helps to keep the fiber from matting so readily on the rabbit, a real plus!
We have decided to bring in a Shetland ram along with two Shetland / Icelandic cross ewes. A wonderful dual purpose breed. I am very excited to begin working with this fiber.
What a wonderful selection of fiber that I now have to work with!!
I also share my love of processing fiber, spinning, weaving, felting, knitting, animal husbandry...You are more than welcome to come visit and see what it is all about! Please contact before coming, thank you.

Attempting to work on web site and blog (deleted blog, 1/13/12) on Wednesdays...knowing me, it will take weeks to get in the habit!
01/13/12 Update...The animals and fiber from the farm are priority, not computer time... No time for the blog, so will delete. I am on facebook for family, so will try to keep up the Little Bit Acre Page with current news. Will use web site to update major changes and events? Just trying to find something that works for me to update the farm. Now we will see...
Updated on 9/27/2011. Still so much to do, but time to start processing those fibers and farm chores!
Web Site finally published at 2:20 am 7/02/11....;)
