Shaltz Farm Home
In addition to our products, we offer a number of services at Shaltz Farm which have grown out of our personal needs and interests. Some we have more time for during the winter months.
Please contact us for additional information about any of these services.
Winter: Time for Indoor Activities!
Winter in northwest lower Michigan can be long, and dark, and snowy. Eight or nine feet of snow for the winter is common, and seems to arrive between Christmas and mid-January each year. Chores take longer, but at least we can move hay bales on a sled rather than having to carry it to the sheep!
This is the time of year when we spend more time indoors than out. Web design and updating, spinning and weaving, skirting, washing, and dyeing wool, and planning gardens are some of the things we do during the short, dark days.
