At the Hirsel, we do all we can to give our animals the best lives possible. Then when they must leave us, we try to sell as many live – for breeding, conservation efforts, or pets – as we can. When we take their lives to help feed our community, we waste as little as we can – turning our sheep’s horns and skins into marketable products too, whenever possible. What wool we do not sell, or use for in-house crafting, gets used in the garden. Selling our animals, their by-products, and any crops we can, helps support those animals we keep on the farm for their entire lives. And every time you buy a Hirsel product, or attend a Hirsel Farm Visit or Workshop, you are supporting our efforts to regenerate our family farm, and helping us offer our resident livestock and wildlife, their best lives possible.
