Heather's loan finished fundraising,

A loan helped a shepherd efficiently and effectively feed her flock for a year.
I began my shepherding journey with our flock of Icelandic sheep through a series of happy accidents. I had to step back from my teaching career in order to care for my parents and found myself as a steward of a large property that needed grazing. My family and I established our flock of Icelandic sheep and found that this triple-purpose breed perfectly matches our natural environment. Raising wool, milk, and meat for local consumption is the most rewarding thing I have ever done. Through this enterprise, I have developed lasting relationships in the agricultural community and expanded my knowledge of fiber, cheesemaking, and meat-producing industries.
