AN AUTHENTIC TUSCAN EXPERIENCE We are thrilled to invite you to visit our farm and shop: a place to discover some simple pleasures, to get your fill of goats and puppies, and choose some lovely fiber and yarn, handmade textiles, and top-quality, hand-made in Tuscany accessories.

If you have seen your fill of churches and outlets, a visit to our farm is what you were missing. First, there are the GOATS!! Little ones, big ones and baby kids cavorting in the fields - garanteed entertainment, just stand still and watch the unending antics of baby kids! Our kids will be born in 2018 during March thru the first week of June

GROUPS
everything you wanted to know about Cashmere but didn't know enough to ask!! Book a group visit and learn about: the basics of cashmere goats, what they are, how they are raised, how we harvest their lovely fiber and how it is processed into a finished garment. On request, we can organize spinnig, weaving, knitting or embroidery CLASSES with our Italian artisan collaborators.

LUNCH IN THE GARDEN What better way to experience a little bit of real country life - a delicious, laid-back lunch shared overlooking the valley. Basic back-to-the earth home-cooking with ingredients straight from our garden, and cheeses, meats and wine from our local farmers and producers

GOAT CAMP if you like to roll up your sleeves and get dirty, you can come in the spring for goat combing: this is the busiest time of the yar, when we harvest the precious cahmere fiber from our 200+ goats, and you can actually help!

For SPINNERS: come and stay at our farm and help us to comb the goats in the spring (April, May, June). This really is a unique experience, and you are welcome to take home the raw fiber that you manage to comb while you're here - we give you the goat and the comb and you provide the elbow grease!!!!

We suggest a camera to immortalize the fun - you will be the envy of all your friends back home!

For WEAVERS, KNITTERS and FELTERS: we oranzie spinning classes for beginner spinners who want to learn to use their hand-harvested cashmere fiber to make something beautiful and useful, too! For htose of you who are too impatient to spin theri own, skeins and cones of Cashmere yarn, raw fiber and dehaired fiber by weight are available most of the year to choose from

Last but not least: BE A SHEPHERD FOR A DAY New in 2018: a full-immersion in the life of a cashmere goat shepherd! You will accompany us and our herd of goats through the fields and woods surrounding our farm, stopping for a wine-tasting at our neighbor's farm, and coming back home to a lavish farm lunch. This definitely has to be included in your bucket list! An unforgettable experience for all ages!
