We purchased Checkmate Farm in 2002. The farm is currently home to our Karakul Sheep and other animals, which you can learn more about by visiting our Animals page. We create rug yarn from our Karakul sheep wool. Kathy is an Oxford Company Rug Hooking Instructor. Visit checkmate farm.com for class information and vendor dates.
Since occupying Checkmate Farm, we have developed and maintained beautiful perennial gardens and moved several Karakul sheep, heritage pigs, and sheep dogs to the farm.
As our farm grows, we continue to renovate the property and develop ways to enhance the lives of our animals. You can take home a piece of Checkmate Farm by purchasing our Market lamb or Wool products.
