Humbug Farm was established in 1993.  The name is a play on sheep (as in baaaa humbug!). 

Humbug Farm raises Border Leicester sheep for show and sale.  Of course, by-products such as wool, lamb, and finished goods from their renewable fleeces are also available.

Humbug Farm also raises Nubian dairy goats for milk and companion animals. 

Farming on a small scale (less than 50 acres) is far from an exact science.  Seasons, weather, current sales, breeding time and coyotes all cause product availability to change from week to week.
Upcoming Festivals 2016
My farm is a working farm and not open to the public for tours.  If a customer makes an appointment to come by to pick up their purchase of soap, wool, etc. of course you are welcome to stop and see the livestock.

Awesome goat milk soap and wool products can be ordered via my website and shipped to you or you can stop by my booth at any festival listed below.

Here I am pictured with a young lamb.  It all started with sheep.  I love them!   

Sheep are why my farm is named "Humbug Farm"....as in baa Humbug!

Later on, I added horses, briefly had cows, and then fell in love with dairy goats.  Those rascals are fun to watch and handle.  Their milk is quite tasty, too!




You are welcome to pre-order your items for pick up at the festival or just show up and shop at your leisure.
