The Pemaquid Peninsula is home to our small sheep and goat farm,
Ruit Farm North. Our now former flock consisted of Coopworth and Border Leicester sheep. We began raising Lamancha dairy goats about 12 years ago alongside the sheep, and a few years ago we began adding Golden Guernsey dairy goats to the herd as we decided to end our husbandry of sheep (although I have a fiber loft pretty full of some beautiful yarn and roving from our sweeties). I make lots of goat milk soap and cheese during the milking seasons.
My passion for fiber and making has led me to a lifetime of dabbling in the fiber arts. I am a spinner, felter, knitter and weaver, as well as a retired school librarian. But my overriding passion is really for the animals themselves, their everyday care and their amazing companionship!
