Breeze Hill Farm

Breeze Hill Farm Celebrating over 30 years! We are located in Powhatan VA, and are a true sheep/fiber farm offering fine fibers, yarns and more...

It's starting to look like grey's are my color this year. Here's a lovely little cowl knitted up of natural grey Gotland sheep wool. A nice light weight cowl looks great as an accessory piece but wrapped, pinned or folded it can be a perfect for block fridged winds when outside.

As with all of the items I make, from the farm, if you love it and want it..message me!

Our handmade chunky scarves and cowls are great for those who appreciate what we call "art to wear". They are the perfect accessory piece yet warm enough when wrapped to handle biting cold! There aren't many left and the farm elf might not have a chance to make more this season. PM me if you're interested.

Since I make fingerless gloves all year long we always have them available. Made with 100% lambswool, they are soft and oh so warm. Tell me your color choice(s) and I'm sure we can match your need/want. They make great gifts too!

I was asked last week "after almost 30 years of raising sheep and making things from their wool, do you ever get tired of it?". Just took this beauty off the needles...in case you're curious, I said no!

A gorgeous handknit lambswool scarf in soft grey. I love what I do ❤🐑!

Lesson number 1...

The wool fibre: 100% natural, 100% renewable.

From apparel, fashion and activewear, to manufacturing, space travel and more –wool's applications are vast and dynamic.

Transcending generations of change, the wool fibre continues to meet, adapt, and fulfil hundreds of product scenarios.

Choose well, choose wool!

Such a shame but a very safe and practical decision.

Such a shame but a very safe and practical decision.

It is with enormous sadness that we have decided to cancel this year's festival due to the rain and winds of Hurricane Ian. We have determined that the weather conditions posed too great a risk to our animals, vendors, and volunteers. Thank you so much to everyone who helped prepare for this year's Festival. In the coming days, we will reach out to individuals who have purchased tickets or classes with additional information. Please reach out to [email protected] with any questions you might have and we look forward to seeing you in 2023!

We have an exciting Breeze Hill Farm treat at the Powhatan Village Farmers Market today. Our much loved socks!! The processor sent us a 2 dozen pair tease. Made from our wool and blended with alpaca fiber, these socks have been a mainstay of our farm business for 20 years now. Men's and ladies, medium, large and extra large in several different colors. It's not to early to pick up pairs for you and for gifts! We've enjoyed ours the last two mornings as Fall like temps have cooled down the morning low temps!

Come see us...4:00-6:30 pm

Hi everyone! We will be back at Powhatan Village Farmers Market tomorrow as the Breeze Hill Farm you've known for so many years. Thank you everyone for all of your patience as we've tried to branch out with our farm and farm business..some things worked beautifully but most of the new ideas did not. Oh well!

OK, so what's happening...how about Christmas in September!! Tomorrow we will have our first handknit accessories available, some handspun yarns, some commercial spun/hand dyed yarns and yes, I will have my wheel showing how our great handspun yarn is made. Stop by and see us..we're looking so forward to being back..doing what we do!

Great for business Facebook..would not allow the share from my page, soooo here's what I tried to share....

"A big shout out to Fruit Hill Orchard for the great day we had Saturday and the amazing box of $20.00 "scratch & dent" peaches we got. Usually, with a great deal like this, you're lucky if you can use half the box but not theirs...9 1/2 quarts of peeled, sliced and diced peaches in the freezer ready to become peach cobblers for Breeze Hill Farm kitchen!! Also picked up a peck of yellow freestone peaches to include in Shortbread Biscuit kits (available at Powhatan Village Farmers Market this week)."

If you're local and have never made the trip to this orchard you should. It is so pristine, welcoming, excellent fruit (both peaches and apples right now), excellent value added products, cut your own flowers, local meats, eggs, milk and a carefully selected offering of arts and crafts. Oh, and the place was packed! While I'm gushing about them, I'd be remiss if I didn't also shout out to the amazing staff of young folks working there..knowledgeable, polite, and a joy to see that kind of work ethic.

Hey folks it been a bit since our last post. Still on the mend, working around the farm and will be back at the markets next week!
I see Facebook claims I have a 0% response to messages. I find that interesting since I've had no messages to respond to. Maybe, if you have a minute, a few if you could message us so I can respond. That way it doesn't look like I ignore Facebook 's said messages. Thank so so much!!

We will not be at Powhatan Village Farmers Market today. As we were getting the van loaded, I fell down the steps. Instead of bringing all the good veggies, teas and biscuits to the market..we are getting my foot checked out to make sure it isn't broken 😢. Keep good thoughts. See everyone next week.

Our Story

The Breeze Hill Farm story began in 1993 with 4 Romney x Border Leicester sheep, 3 Angora Rabbits, a spinning wheel and the desire to bring a high quality, locally raised yarn to the knitting community. At the same time produce wool and fiber for other fiber artist that had not or could not make the leap into raising livestock. Not an easy task without the internet!!

Through the years, as peoples interests changed, we continued to change and grow ourselves. During leaner times, we started a farm based fiber share program. Also, we started having our fibers processed at the mill. Handspun yarn became a specialty. At one point we had 30 sheep, over 25 Angora rabbits, 2 llamas, an Angora goat, plus a handful of dairy goats. Having made the choice, in the beginning, to be a “no kill” farm, each year was becoming harder on us because of so many ram lambs. In 2008, we ended our breeding program and chose to bring in ewe lambs to add to our flock.

Fast forward to today. So many things have changed. There is a lot more competition now in the small fiber farm community. The demand for sustainable yarns and fibers has grown. We do still have our original bloodline of sheep but we’ve new breeds, with different fiber types to tempt our customers with! I teach knitting, crochet, spinning and needle felting classes year round. It is also my job to create..the fun part. Hubby is the farmer. He keeps our producers fed, vetted and spoiled. You can find us at fiber festivals, farmers markets, holiday markets, special events and of course..online.

The past 25 years have been an awesome journey and we can’t wait to see where the future takes this fantastic and amazing industry and our quest to make the “perfect yarn”.
