A warm welcome to you from Sheepy Hollow Farm / Wool & Wit LLC.
Our journey began over three decades ago when we purchased land – a former hay-field – during one of our country back-road short cuts. Our 30-acre farmstead has grown and evolved over the ensuing years. We are located off-the-beaten-path in rural Armada Township (in northern Macomb County), at 73910 Coon Creek Road between Armada Center Road and 34 Mile Road, Michigan.
With life’s experiences comes change & growth! Sheepy Hollow Farm is currently home to our daughter’s Kentucky Rocky Mountain Saddle horses and Oberhasli dairy goats, my small flock of Shetland sheep, a few laying hens for fresh eggs, dogs and cats. Our two children are now grown and pursuing life interests. As empty nesters – for all practical reasons – we have significantly downsized both the gardens and barnyard menagerie! After all, how much goat milk/fresh cheese can one consume? My fiber art ‘projects’ including the making of faux pelt felted wool rugs, weaving, spinning, natural dyeing and more… consumes most of my day!
I have also “tweaked” the focus of my farm business (formerly Sheepy Hollow Herbs, LLC) from herbs to fiber art, thus WOOL & WIT, LLC in June 2013. My workshop/studio is located here at the farm residence in an on-site out-building. I continue to raise naturally grown pesticide-free lavender (a best-seller) and variety of herbs, fresh picked and dried/bundled. We use the freshest ingredients in our hand-crafted goat milk soap!

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, our farm shop has very limited visiting hours. I APPRECIATE AND PREFER to schedule farm visits in advance by appointment. CDC safety guidelines must be strictly adhered to. ALL visitors must wear masks while indoors!
