Grace Valley's Fall Spectacular Wool Special

As the year begins winding down, and Thanksgiving and Christmas approach, we would like to extend a special fleece offer as you prepare for the Holidays. We have recently had some of our premium fleeces become available for sale and we would like to offer them to you. Some of these fleeces have been in competition this summer, winning awards and touring the country! 

Fall Spectacular Savings

From now through November 10th, all orders placed via email will receive free shipping with the purchase of two or more fleeces! 
This special sale includes Frosty’s stunning fleece, the Overall Reserve Grand Champion fleece at the 2014 Iowa State Fair! Ribbon winners from other competitions this summer are also available. From white to black and many colors in between, you are welcome to browse the fleece selection on our 2014 Fleeces tab.

Our fall special also includes a big sale on roving! Charcoal Roving is now just $1.38/ounce or $5.50 for a 4 ounce ball! Buy 8 or more ounces and receive 10% off the already reduced price! Check it out on the Roving Tab.

Autumn Days and Harvest Time

Summer has come and gone. The leaves have changed from green to yellow, and now winter is quickly approaching. 

Please enjoy the latest updates from our Farm as we look back over a productive summer!

Our second cutting of hay was baled in August and a superb third cutting was taken in September.

Abby's summer litter of puppies have all found new homes! Faith, pictured above, went to Las Vegas to live with her new family

Our garden harvest has been progressing and we are almost finished!

Our leeks have all been chopped and frozen. We are looking forward to delicious soup this winter!

We had another bumper crop of watermelon! This one weighed in at 45 pounds!

The calves are growing nicely and gaining weight. Russet is especially large for his age.

We enjoyed a very special visit from our friends Pat and Lisa. 

We were privileged to take a short trip to the Grand Tetons with them. The fall scenery was breathtaking!

Here at Grace Valley Farms our fall work has begun and preparations are under way for winter. 

All too soon, falling snowflakes will replace the falling leaves. We are reminded of the many blessings the Lord sent our way this summer and we are grateful for another year!

Thou crownest the year with thy goodness; and thy paths drop fatness.They drop upon the pastures of the wilderness: and the little hills rejoice on every side. The pastures are clothed with flocks; the valleys also are covered over with corn; they shout for joy, they also sing. 
Psalm 65:11-13

A Cinnamon Project

Julie from Iowa is pleased to share her artistic work with us...

Cinnamon's fleece from 2013 has been spun and knit into this beautiful blanket.

The variegation added a lovely effect to the finished product!

Thanks for sharing, Julie!
