Highland Hollow Farms
is owned and operated by John and Jane Eager. Originally from the Twin Cities, Mn. We are heading towards a lifelong dream of rural self-sufficiency with alot of hard, hands-on work.
Our goal is to raise a variety of unique “antique” animals using organic methods, backed with much loving care.
Because neither of us were raised on farms we wanted animals that were hardy. Our interest is in low maintenance farming, and we are willing to try out different things, we aren’t into exotic animals (although we do have a breeding pair of peafowl,) but rather, the older breeds. At Highland Hollow Farms we have a beautiful flock of Registered Shetland sheep. Our flock number is #229. We got our first pair of Shetland sheep in the summer of 1993. And we have been in love with these little beauties since. We both enjoy spinning the wool into yarn. We enjoy spinning right off the sheep. We skirt the fleece lightly, and just grab wool and start spinning.
We believe in being good stewards of the land and hope that this acreage will be an improved parcel of land when it’s time to pass it on.
