Hobbyknob Farm

Raising farm animals suitable for the small homestead in Western North Carolina

About US
I have been raising llamas, sheep and chickens since 2001. The sheep I raise are dual purpose (fiber and meat) and on the the Livestock Conservancy list. My primary sheep breed is the Jacob sheep. My llamas are mostly for fun and fiber. I do not currently breed llamas. Llamas are good grazers and browsers, highly intelligent and trainable. I raise laying chickens traditionally found on old farms that are known to be hardy and good foragers.

I have a very small herd of Nigerian Dwarf dairy goats and nigerian crosses (Lamancha, Oberhasli, French alpine) for pets and milk. a limited number of kids are for sale in the spring.

I am constantly learning about these animals and would love to help you learn also. Find the farm on Facebook at Hobbyknob farm for current photos and happenings.
