My name is Holly, and my husband's name is Dan.
Throughout my life, I have been passionate
about three things: Animals, Art, and the Environment. I studied
Environmental Science at the University of Idaho in an effort of finding
eco-friendly solutions to our everyday needs, such as food, clothing,
and energy, and I continue to seek out advice from working farmers
my journey, I learned new ways of thinking and raising animals, and I
learned the importance of reusing and buying groceries and other goods
locally whenever possible. I also learned how terrible factory farming
is for the environment, and I vowed to change the way I live. My
husband and I started to buy from natural foods markets more, as well
as switching to a vegetarian diet, purchasing food from farmers markets,
and conserving water and energy. And I started to spin my own yarn and
make some of our own clothing and soaps.
new-found passion led me and my husband on a new path -- a journey to
one day create a self-sustaining farm that would not only help support
us, but also support other farmers, artists, and animals in need. And
thus Blue Barn Fiber was dreamed up.
are still a long way from owning our own piece of paradise, but every
day is one step closer to having our beautiful Blue Barn and a sanctuary
for farm animals. For now, we continue to do our part by supplying the
fiber world with beautiful, lovingly-grown fiber and discouraging harsh
chemical dyes, opting for more natural solutions whenever possible. A
great amount of our silks are recycled and reused, giving new life to
products that would otherwise be thrown away. We invite you to join us
on our journey, and add us to your facebook friends if you would like to chat with us! We would love to get to know you.
