Welcome to our new venture, Gage Hill Crafts. Many of you already know us and know what we do: a little sheep farming, brewing great beer, selling yarn at fiber festivals, and sharing tales of our travels.

So why the name change from Terrapin Gardens? We’re making some changes at the farm, and wanted a name that was easier to remember (and pronounce, and spell) and that would reflect our new focus. We are reducing our flock size to concentrate on our retail business, and we will introduce new items as well, like knitting and brewing tools. The term “Craft” more fully encompass all of our interests: the crafts of farming, brewing, cooking, photographing, writing, knitting, and other creative and productive activities.

We hope you’ll visit us at the farm, or stop by one of the craft shows this summer and fall. We have new products for sale now and will be adding more throughout the year. We also want to hear from you about your practice of craft. What are you growing, building, brewing, creating?  If you’ve used our yarns or wool in a recent project, please send us a photo so we can feature your work in the Customer Gallery.

We invite you to explore our new site, which includes our food and brewing recipes and travel journal.  We’ll also post information on hand dyeing wool, one of several new crafts that we’re exploring.

Happy Crafting!
