Roanoke is 10 minutes one way and Rocky Mount 20 minutes the other direction.

I am a feminine farmer of a small flock of sheep, goats, chickens and horses. I love crafting from the resources these sweet animals provide, making goat milk soap, yarn and fiber arts. Living only 3/4 of a mile from the cottage that we rent on Airbnb, allows me to be helpful but not in the space of our guests. I will be offering Airbnb "experiences" in coming months. Included in these offerings will be soap making demonstrations, farm visits and fiber art classes. We love the mountains of Virginia and hope you can enjoy them also.
