The Little Farm & Annie Morton Designs
A small family farm and sewing studio located in beautiful Athens Tennessee. Here, via sustainable and ecologically responsible farming, we raise fresh fruit and vegetables, bees and honey, chickens, ducks, and eggs, and angora goats and shetland sheep. In my sewing studio I showcase and offer to my clients one of a kind, beautiful, handmade textile accessories.
We love our bees. They are gentle, they smell amazing, and they provide us with plenty of honey to share with our community.
Here on The Little Farm, we harvest, process, and bottle all of our honey a single hive at a time. Through the natural process of terroir, each hive can produce distinctly different flavor profiles of honey, even though the hives themselves are just a few feet apart in the apiary.
Goats, Sheep, & Wool
Our farm is the happy home of a small flock of scratch and dent, down on their luck, and ready for retirement angora and pygmy angora cross goats and shetland sheep. They are adorable and silly and sweet. They serve the dual purpose of keeping our non arable land mowed and producing high quality, super fine, luxury mohair and wool for spinners, dyers, weaver, and other fiber artists.
Sewing, Spinning, and Weaving
Annie Morton Designs is the name of my sewing, spinning, and weaving studio here on the farm. I spend the evenings, rainy days, and much of the winter in my studio making one of a kind, beautiful, handmade accessories, fiber arts bags, and woven shawls. Each item in my shop is a work of fabric art which doubles as a functional accessory. They take hours to produce from fabric selection through to photography. I do hope you enjoy your purchases as much as I enjoy making them.
