West Elm Farm started out in 2000 in Pembroke Massachusetts. The original farm was built in 1805 by the Mann family. For 20 years we raised a flock of Icelandic Sheep as well as the occasional Angora goat, Llama, Bees and assorted poultry. Our goal at West Elm Farm was to produce quality breeding stock by keeping our flock small and providing our animals with a healthy, safe and ecofriendly living environment. While working with the wool, we discovered the amazing skin benefits of Lanolin, a natural oil by product in wool. We developed a line of Goat’s Milk & Lanolin Soap and Lanolin based hand balm in addition to wool and yarn products. We also expanded into a line of scented Pure Beeswax candles.
After 20 years, we decided to downsize our life and moved to Marshfield Massachusetts. We continue our line of Goat’s Milk & Lanolin Soap, Hand Balm and Scented Pure Beeswax Candles. Although we no longer raise our own sheep, we purchase fleeces from other local shepherds and process the wool into roving for hand spinners and finished yarn. The added advantage is we can offer a variety of different kinds of wool products besides Icelandic wool.
