Welcome to Red Creek Farm!




We are a small family-run sheep farm in Mendocino County, California, specializing in fine handspinning fleeces. Tucked away in a corner of Potter Valley, our flock of over 30 sheep spends its summers on irrigated clover pasture, winters on grass and alfalfa hay, and springs ranging in the hills. We practice Climate Beneficial methods and are a certified Fibershed producer.

                   
Spring News  
  
Our 2018 lambs are growing well with the green spring grass. Thanks to Carrie Sparrevohn and John Ham of Kirabo Pastures in Lake County for the loan of their Merino ram, Ulysses, last fall while our new ram, Kahoutek, is growing up. We are thrilled with our little Moorit ewe lamb, Lily. Check out our new photos of lamb fun.

Our hill land is recovering from the fire that swept through last October, burning most of our hills, but sparing our barns and house. The open grass lands have resprouted nicely, but a great number of trees were burnt. Time will tell which ones will survive.

We are looking forward to the fiber events of 2018 and hope to see you at one of them.
