What’s going on here? My site started ten years ago this month and to celebrate I’m giving away something each weekday. Because I like you.
Today I’m thrilled to say that Juniper Moon Farm has offered a Yarn CSA for one lucky reader, the 2012 Spring Shearing worth $175 (that’s some serious yarn). The Yarn CSA works like a farm CSA but instead you get a yield of the scrumptious yarn that is produced from the sheep and goats they lovingly raise. Juniper Moon Farm is amazing run by a small group of people who are dedicated to what they do and are fantastic about sharing what is going on with share holders, visitors, and readers of their blog. The farm was started by Susan, whom I’ve followed since she started (back then it was the Martha’s Vineyard Fiber Farm, which you might remember if you’ve been reading my site long enough) and I’m astounded and so pleased to watch how it’s grown. If you’re not already I encourage you to read the blog, follow along as lambs are born in the spring on the LambCams, see what the farm dogs are up to, you can attend shearing day and even stay at the farm for a week or long weekend. It’s really amazing to watch the farm work all year and then find yarn at your door that reflects all of the care and attention that they put into it. I just want to hug the whole farm. The blog isn’t just about the farm, I’ve loved all the Probably Something You Would Like links posts, her recent pictures from Preakness, her famous world’s greatest granola recipe and how she went paper towel free on the whole farm (it involves making a lot of your own cloth napkins, enough so you always have plenty of clean ones).
Would you like to win this amazing Yarn CSA? If so please leave a comment with this entry and let me know the following: Have you ever spent time on a farm? I spent a few summers on my uncle’s farm in Oklahoma, he had cattle, two greyhounds, a small lake with a rope swing, a tiny farmhouse and bales of hay that seemed to be piled taller than the house itself. I loved it there. Ok, you’ve got until Tuesday, May 24th at 10 a.m. PST to enter, the fine print applies, good luck! Closed, thanks so much for entering!
