Fiber Farm is home to a humble herd of alpacas, a few sheep, two miniature guardian donkeys, a couple cats, and one dog. Located atop the South Cumberland Plateau in Tracy City, TN, the farm is a working example of a vertically integrated micro-textile operation.
I began this textile journey on the front porches of the rural South, learning to hand stitch from my mother and a small group of women who were like grandmothers to me. As I completed my education in Apparel Design, I directed my focus toward creating a livelihood that did not further harm the environment. I believe that designers are here to help solve problems, not create them.
The farm is here to provide a place where sustainable textile creation and education can flourish. It is a gathering spot for folks young and old to meet a variety of animals and glimpse life on a working farm + homestead.
The front half of the farmhouse is for short term rentals via AirBnB. We are located halfway between Chattanooga and Nashville and surrounded by the incredible South Cumberland State Park, with hundreds of miles of incredible hiking and outdoor recreation opportunities.
