Jefferson Farms Natural Fibers
2015 Shearing days!
May 11-13 in Denver, and May 28-31 in Salida. We won't use all this time, so maybe you'll join us for a post shearing party or golf game? We will save a few animals in each location, to do a demo shearing. As we get closer we will set the day for this, and invite you all to come, watch the process and have time to answer questions and look over a few fleeces!
we'll be shearing over 400 animals so come see the process,especially if you'd like to lend a hand or if you need your animal shorn
There is rarely a dull moment at Jefferson Farms! Here is a partial list of events we are participating in as well as happenings at the farms.

Dramatic Weather Day
by Jane Levene on 06/18/12
Hi all, it's been a very busy few weeks here. We sheared most of the animals in Salida end of May, then followed with shearing the herd the first weekend of June, then Estes Park Wool Market, and now finishing up with about one and a half more days in Salida. Its' all gone very well, tremendous excitement over the PVs and the fleece and products. So on the right track! I've put a photo of the farm today, impressive sky. But not much rain, considering we were clobbered last week by a storm of near-biblical proportions. Hail, buckets of rain and lightning that would not stop for even a minute, lasting 2 hours. Biggest rain storm of my life. Now blizzards- we seen bigger! Once I get all the fleeces together, I will sort and grade and get them to the mill ASAP. Babies are coming about 2-3 weekes late so far this spring. Will post photos as soon as we get a few more on the ground. Take care, and hope the weather treats you all well. Jane

We will be at the National Western Stock Show, from January 10-25, 2015. Jefferson Farms was instrumental in starting the Natural Fibers educational display, which focuses on educating the public about the natural fibers, processing, and products being produced in the Rocky Mountain region. You will learn about basic spinning, see fiber samples and be able to bid on top quality blue ribbon fleeces of all types! National Western Stock Show is a tremendous supporter of the agricultural life, and the fiber display showcases wools and specialty fibers from all types of animals. We will be in the Stadium Hall, lower level, for the entire run of the show.
