Owner Name(s): Greg & Kris Thorne
Long Business Description:

Located on 25 acres, just outside of Westminster, Maryland, our small handspinners flock of long wool sheep produces both fiber and meat, allowing us to sell yarn from our own flock, spinning fibers, sheepskins and freezer lamb.

Our crossbred ewes are predominantly Romney and Leicester Longwool, both white and natural colored.

We are also passionate about local produce, and grow vegetables, flowers and herbs in our market garden.  All of our vegetables are grown without the use of chemical fertilizers, herbicides, or fungicides.  We do not use any genetically modified seeds.

In the spring and early summer, we sell tomato, pepper, eggplant, and herb plants from our greenhouse, many are heirloom varieties.  All of our plants are started from untreated seeds.  They are grown in an organic, compost-based potting mix and are fertilized with organic fertilizers & kelp.

We also sell brown eggs from our flock of free range laying hens.

All of our products are available each week at the Downtown Westminster Farmers Market, Saturday mornings from 8:00 am to noon.   Address:  Railraod Ave. (MD Rt. 27) & Emerald Hill Lane, Westminster, MD  21157.

Owner Name(s): Bill & Joan Baker
Long Business Description:

Registered purebred and percentage White Dorper meat sheep.  Currently have 20 brood ewes.  Breeding stock is available.

We sell USDA-inspected frozen lamb directly from the farm -- whole, half, or individual cuts.  Our lambs are ready for market at about 8 months of age.

We prefer fall lambing because the lambs grow better in the cold weather and parasites are not as much of an issue.

While the White Dorpers do not grow enough wool to require shearing, the lamb pelts are beautiful and super-soft.  We have tanned sheepskin pelts.
