Join Anna Hunter of Longway Homestead Fibre Farm & Wool Mill, over at our community space on Zoom! What we put on our bodies is just as important as what we put in our bodies. Do you know where your clothes are made?  Do you know how wool is transformed into a sweater or a hat?  Learn the journey of wool to yarn at Manitoba’s only wool processing mill.

Anna Hunter is a first generation sheep farmer, living in Ste. Geneveive, Treaty One Territory. Along with her husband Luke and their two boys they have a growing flock of shetland sheep. Moving from Vancouver in 2015 with a passion for fibre arts, small-scale sustainable farming and slow-fashion they began a fibre farm with the intention of growing and manufacturing local wool. Quickly realizing that the missing link was also a wool mill they opened a wool processing mill in July of 2018. They used some unconventional methods to start their small farm including raising capital. They direct market their wool products and now process other farmers’ wool.
