About Bluffwood Landing:
Perched on a woodsy bluff, this 15 acre wool farm is home to endangered Jacob, Tunis and CVM/Romeldale sheep. Pelts, fleeces, roving, yarn & livestock are for sale. When not tending sheep, spinning wool, or teaching craft classes, you will find LindaDee singing in her riotious veggie, herb, fruit, and flower garden. Bio-diversity is key to this organically inspired farmstead where sheep mow lawn, pollinators flourish, hobbits lurk and miracles happen.
CANCELLATION POLICY: NO REFUNDS. SOIL SISTERS has a no refund policy. You can, however, transfer your ticket to another person, provided that person is in possession of the ticket at the time of the workshop.
