Sunbow Farm in Eau Claire, WI has 45 sheep, a whole lot of chickens and fields and fields and greenhouses of vegetables and herbs. While I was there, a few of the members owning CSA shares were earning their veggies by weeding those gardens. The sheep were contentedly hiding under a tree from the growing sun in one of their pastures. There are five fields they are rotated between, making them entirely grass fed sheep. The sheep are a mixed breed that is primarily Icelandic. The morning I came it had rained so their wool still drying in the sun, but they came eagerly to the fence to greet us. Two hundred lbs of wool later, my van was very full.
Kristina Beuning’s green thumb extends beyond vegetables to herbs as well. Her herbal line of salves, teas, extracts, soaps, oils, and bulk herbs is supplied with either herbs from her garden or foraged herbs on their land. All of their products are available at the farm by contacting them; the herbal products are also available in local shops around Eau Claire. Look for the SunBow symbol of a sun in a bow.
