salt & fat & smoke

We strive to utilize everything from the animals we raise, and learn some of the forgotten but no less valuable skills, including tanning skins. Unlike modern tanning methods which rely on heavy metals and caustic acids that threaten the land and waters around them, our sheepskins are tanned right here on the farm with traditional methods utilizing salt, fat and the tannic acid from smoke to preserve them. As well as a whole lot of patience & elbow grease.
