Blind Buck Farm
Blind Buck Farm is a sustainable farm in Salem, New York, established in 2010, owned and managed by Lubna Dabbagh. The farm raises fiber animals, poultry and eggs, and produce. Currently, we have 25 purebred Angora goats, 30 Merino sheep, seven Angora rabbits, 1 Llama, and 2 Alpacas. We are also very pleased that in 2014, we acquired a flock of 4 Leicester Longwood sheep, a severely endangered species. In 2015, we welcomed three new Leicester Longwools, all born on the farm.
By keeping our own flocks, we can guarantee that all of our fiber is natural. Our yarns are spun by local mills, too. All of our animals are raised on pasture, enriched with organic materials.
Our specialty is blending fine fibers in unique combinations. In addition, we will blend our fibers with natural fibers from local farms, such as alpaca and silk. We dye our own yarn right on the farm, using only metal-free non-toxic dyes. Many of our colors are inspired by our farm.
