I should have shared this with you so much sooner! We were profiled in the Chesapeake Fibershed Stories Blog. It was fun to talk to Marian about the farm, my yarn and my commitment to the Fibershed values. You can read it here.
In this episode, I talk to Emily about shepherding. We talked about how she became a shearer and shepherd. We talk about raising healthy animals and how she is using regenerative practices to improve her land. We also talked about what it takes to be a woman shearer in a man’s world.
Emily is one to the strongest women that I know. She made a place for herself in a really physically demanding profession. She is empathetic to the animals and the shepherds who tend to them. And she has raised a strong, smart daughter.
