Thirteen Mile Lamb and Wool Company brings you certified organic products made from our flock of sheep in southwestern Montana. Tender lamb meat, grass along with sweaters, hats, mittens, blankets, yarn, rugs and handspinners fleeces are the things you can buy, but you are sharing in much more when you do so. For pictures and news about what is happening at the farm, look at news. And for stories and projects featuring our organic, plant-dyed roving and yarns, check out the wool blog, a local fiber artist's blog about her love of Thirteen Mile Wool.
At Thirteen Mile Farm we raise sheep without using chemical fertilizers and herbicides on our fields, and the sheep grow on grass, clover and alfalfa with no antibiotics or hormone supplements. Our lamb is certified organic by the Montana State Department of Agriculture. The livestock are fenced out of the creeks to protect both local wildlife habitat and the quality of the sheeps' drinking water. Our principal protection against native predators are our guard dogs and llamas and our own vigilance; because we have chosen not to use lethal control methods against coyotes, bears, wolves, mountain lions, our ranch is certified as "predator friendly". It is a choice which, like many of our land management decisions, acknowledges risk in the interest of learning how to coexist with native species while caring for the land.
Our lambs are butchered at a local USDA-inspected facility; our sweaters and hats are made on home knitting machines; and we make our own buttons from old juniper wood fenceposts scavenged on our homestead and other Montana ranches.
A full-service, natural fiber processing mill is operating at Thirteen Mile Lamb & Wool Company. We are processing our own wool, and we are doing custom processing for other fiber producers---washing, picking, carding, pin-drafting, felting and semi-worsted spinning. We can produce roving or batts directly off the carder, pin-drafted sliver, felt, or yarns.
