At Rusted Earth Farm their goal is to produce and design sustainable, handcrafted textiles from the soil up. As part of their farming practice they aim to preserve struggling heritage breeds of wool sheep by using ethical treatment, natural life grazing, and carbon farming.

What a great podcast! It was really interesting to hear Jessica talk about the churro sheep and raising them, especially since I know Lyle McNeal personally and how much work he did for this project!
