Blue Oak Canyon Ranch

I recently got the opportunity to work with the wonderful folks of the Blue Oak Canyon Ranch to build them a website to help get the word out about their fiber farm and the work they do to with heritage breeds of sheep. To quote them...

"Our beautiful, dry dry dry ranch is ten miles north and east of San Miguel, California. We are on the east edge (Diablo Range) of the southern Coast Ranges, in the Paso Robles area of California wine country. We cherish our landscapes, with Coast Live and Blue Oaks, Foothill Pines, Junipers, Chaparral, and grasslands. We raise sheep, llamas, turkeys, and chickens and specialize in heritage breeds of sheep: Navajo-Churro and the very rare Santa Cruz Island."
Check out these cool animals!

Chickens, too!

It was so much fun working on their site and learning more.  And it was neat to find other folks that are interested in fiber animals and fiber processing like us!  I hope you will check out their site, Blue Oak Canyon Ranch, and click on their shop to see the great fleeces and processed wool they have.  (I think I may have to get some for us to spin!)
