Fleece

Our flock consists of purebred and cross-bred Corriedale ewes that produce a beautiful array of high-quality white and naturally colored silver, grey, black and moorit fleeces. We strive to produce a high quality clean raw fleece that is prized by handspinners and fiber artists.

We primarily sell raw fleece from our flock. We make the sale list public at the end of April once we have finished lambing and skirting of the fleece. When available, we also sell roving and sheep pelts. Ask if you are interested.

Clean, raw Corriedale fleece

We do take reservations for fleece. We highly recommend reservations to past customers who seek more fleece from a particular ewe that they have purchased from us in the past. Our fleece list will be published Sunday, April 24, 2022 at noon.

Here’s our 2022 Fleece List .

For nearly 20 years we have sold the majority of our fleeces at the annual the Shepherd’s Harvest Festival held in Lake Elmo, Minnesota over Mother’s Day weekend.

After a 2 year pandemic-related hiatus, we will be returning to the Shepherds Harvest Festival, held in Lake Elmo, on Saturday, May 7th this year. Look for us under a tent between the vendor buildings ion the fairgrounds.

Here are the options we offer for getting fleece(s) to you:

  • You can reserve fleece(s) from us for pick-up at the Shepherds Harvest Festival. Pick-up must take place by or before 11 am on Saturday, May 7th.
  • You can visit our farm, just South of Duluth, MN, see our flock of ewes and lambs, and pick up your fleece(s).
  • Or, we can also ship the fleece(s) to you. Mailing costs will depend on your location.

We accept checks payable to Strawberry Ridge Farm. Additionally, we are now using PayPal and Venmo for credit card payments.  Contact us for more information.
