Founded in 2017, by Francis and Julie Zilka, Wether’sfield Wool Farm practices natural wool production with a small flock of Finn, Cormo, Gotland, Shetland, and Border Leicester sheep selected for wool quality, color and texture.
Raised for fiber, only ewes and wethers are kept at Wether’sfield.
Our small size assures the health and well-being of every member of our flock, helps avoid damage to the land, and maintains healthy pastures.
By limiting the number of sheep, they can stay on pasture from early spring through late fall. Winter months their diet changes to premium hay. The sheep are not grain fed, but do receive a small amount of grain as “incentive” when it’s time to check parasite load, trim hooves, or evaluate overall health.
Our goal is for our sheep to become self-sustaining and to that end we sell minimally processed wool fiber and fiber products harvested from our flock.
