Small Scale Farming

If you are looking for encouragement while starting your homesteading journey, you have come to the right place. Our family farm is our homestead, where we raise vegetables for our table. and raise animals for fiber, eggs, meat and companionship! Wasting less and being more self sufficient is our ongoing goal.

Our mission with the website is to encourage and educate. We love the life we lead. If the small farm lifestyle is calling to you, I invite you to read through posts on this site. Many subjects related to animal husbandry, gardening, and homesteading are covered.

Our farm has a business side too. Free Range Yarn gathers together the best yarns from local small fiber farmers and brings you an outstanding collection of wool yarn. Supporting Free Range Yarn ultimately supports the small wool producer. Often these yarns are available only at local craft and fiber shows. We make these yarns available to you, in order to support the local wool industry, of which we are a part.We are grateful for each purchase from our shop. As our sales grow we are able to help more sheep farmers distribute their yarn to a wider group of knitters, and fiber artists.

We love to hear from you and welcome your comments. If you are in need of gifts or a small item for yourself, we would be honored if you took a look at what we offer in the Timber Creek Farm Shop. And lastly, if you would like to have all of our recent content delivered to your email each Monday morning, just sign up with your email. The weekly (most times) newsletter brings you updates from our farm and around the web as things pertain to small independent farming. Each of our new posts can be accessed from the newsletter too.
