I love the way the CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) model is being applied things beyond a bag of produce. Like fiber. Fiber! How beautiful is that? Today's Sponsor Giveaway comes from The Shephard's Tale - the blog behind Martha's Vineyard Fiber Farm (with farms both in Martha's Vineyard and the Hudson Valley), where you can find just that - a share in a fiber CSA.
From Martha's Vineyard Fiber Farm:
"If you knit, crochet or spin, you have almost certainly dreamed of owning your very own flock of sheep or goats. Unfortunately, living in the city (or even the suburbs) makes it very hard to get in touch with your inner Little Bo Peep. Our Yarn CSA can make your dreams come true! You can purchase a share of our clip, and we'll take care of all the tedious details (like trimming hoofs, feeding during snowstorms, and cleaning all the poopy hay out of the barn). With a CSA membership, you'll receive a shareholders certificate, weekly farm updates on what's going on around the farm, and an invitation to our Shearing Day Celebration. (And if you get the urge to shovel poopy hay while you're here, we'll lend you a shovel.) After shearing, we'll let our friends at the mill work their magic and soon you'll receive your share of the harvest. The number of skeins, yardage, etc., will depend on the size of the clip, we be do limit the number of share holders so that everyone gets a bountiful supply."
(Note: One need not be local to be a member of the CSA. They'll happily ship your fiber share anywhere in the world!)
Today's giveaway is for one share of the Hudson Valley Fiber Farm Yarn CSA! If you'd like to be entered, simply leave a comment in this post. Comments will be closed at 12pm EST on Sunday, with the winner announced shortly after.
Good luck and Enjoy your weekend!!
Oh this is seriously tempting!
And how adorable is the sheep in a coat in the snow!
