, Sustainable, Unique

Buckwheat Bridge Farm in Hudson Valley, NY is home to nearly 200 Angora goats and Cormo sheep. The Fiber is processed in a completely solar and wind powered mill right on the family owned farm. Most farms focus on part of the yarn making process and must rely on commercial services for fiber, spinning or dyeing and of course, power. Buckwheat Bridge, alone, does it all.
