By Alethea Kenney • SFA Sustainable Sheep
Sheep have been an integral part of Minnesota’s heritage and continue to be a growing part of diverse farms across Minnesota, and SFA’s Sustainable Sheep networking group focuses on connecting sheep farmers, youth, fiber artists and consumers that want to promote, use and sell sustainably raised sheep, meat and fiber products locally.
This group also has a unique opportunity to promote sustainable ways to raise sheep and to educate the public in the importance of choosing local, sustainable fiber for their garments, projects and art.
Seeing northern Minnesota sheep producers moving toward grass-based sustainable sheep production and more sheep products available and being purchased locally is the ultimate goal of the SFA Sustainable Sheep networking group. Please join us in seeing these goals become reality.
