Midgard Meadows is a family-run sheep farm. We have a small flock of purebred, registered Icelandic sheep. We had a bit of trouble finding a pregnant Icelandic ewe to gain lambing experience in 2018 so we got 2 Finnsheep ewes instead. Our first 5 lambs were born here on the farm in March & April 2018. Once the lambs were grown, we converted back to just our Icelandic flock.
In March & April of 2019, our Icelandic ewes added 8 beautiful lambs to our flock. We wethered all 5 rams so that they, along with the 3 ewe lambs would add a variety of color to our fiber flock. Animal welfare is our top priority. We are responsible, caring breeders who take pride in our happy, healthy livestock.
Misty now has a shop called Loom & Hammer. From it she will be offering a steadily widening array of handwoven items and a few hand-forged metal pieces. While we plan to offer items mainly in person at a shop here on the farm and at local fiber shows, the current pandemic has forced us to open an online shop for now. When life gets back to “normal”, Loom & Hammer will finally open up shop in the fiber studio! Please stay tuned!
We have an egg stand open at the entrance to our hay field on Old Union Rd. Please use the contact form if you need directions. This stand is the result of our deconstruction and merging of our small egg stand and Little Free Library. Even if our farm stand is out of items, there will be books in the LFL, free for everyone! I will try to update this page as to our current stock when there is a change (new items or out of items). Please check this page or our Instagram to see what it currently there!
UPDATE: In April & May, our 7 ewes all lambed. They added 11 beautiful lambs to our flock. The sire was a borrowed purebred Finnsheep, making them all Icelandic/Finnsheep crosses. As we initially thought, it turns out these additions make our flock larger than we wanted. We were originally hoping to keep and wether all the ram lambs, and sell all the ewes. We are strongly considering still doing that even though we only wound up with 3 ram lambs.
Current farm stand stock:
May 2020– Egg stand is open but we’ve also been giving away most of our eggs. If the “Eggs” sign is flipped around, eggs were stocked that day.
The LFL is stocked with books. Take a book, leave a book, or both!
