A connection to the earth, a presence in the community.
Fat Toaster Farm is located in the overlapping suburban and rural “Cedar Rock” area just north of Rockford, Michigan. We’re committed to doing all we can to grow ethical produce and meat for our table, alongside sharing fiber arts, animal husbandry, food, and opportunities for education with our community. Here is how you can support us in that effort:
- Offer your help to organize or participate in a cleanup day at the farm. With our new baby around, it is difficult for us to find time to do some of the routine tasks on our own. Would you be willing to help organize some friends and plan a barn clean out? We can provide food, libation, and some post-work fun (like a bonfire)! We have at least enough work to keep 10 people busy for most of a day. Contact Zach today to offer your help in organizing.
- Check out our eclectic fiber arts items and make purchases that support our farm. We have hand-spun and machine-spun yarn, wool roving, a HUGE selection of supple tanned sheep pelts, and even fun items for beginners, such as the handspinning starter kit featured below! If you don’t see what you’re looking for on our Etsy Shop, feel free to contact us to find out what new stock we might have!
