About Us

We took a leap in 2005 by quitting our jobs, selling our house in the D.C. suburbs, and moving back to Vermont, where Sarah was born. Since then, we’ve explored the local food scene, started a garden, taken up home brewing, and become shepherds. Along the way, we’ve gotten to know dozens of craftspeople around the state. We want to share what we have learned, and introduce you to some of the amazing Vermonters who inspire us.

Sarah Scully

During the winter and spring, Sarah is busy with Vermont Natural Sheepskins, the first natural tannery in the USA. Sarah enjoys knitting, spinning, and dyeing wool. You can find her current knitting and spinning projects on Ravelry.

Since 2008 we’ve been cooking, homebrewing, and producing specialty fiber products on our homestead. Long-time followers of the Slow Food movement, we’ve realized that a philosophy of using quality, local ingredients can be extended to other areas of daily life. About us.

We promise to never share or sell your information. EVER!
