Welcome to Tarheelbilly Farm

We are a small farm located in Southern Ohio, among the rolling hills of the Appalachian range. We strive to be good stewards of the land, raising our animals humanely and in keeping with organic and sustainable practices.

We raise Old Style American Tunis Sheep, a historically significant breed on the Livestock Conservancy List. Our sheep are raised the old fashioned way, and they thrive on our rotationally grazed pasture.  Charis, a North Carolina native, is the Tarheel in Tarheelbilly Farm. She is the chief animal manager and shepherd. A self-taught spinner, she also knits and weaves, and shears the flock. Our award-winning fleeces are sold to fiber aficionados far and wide. The wool is then processed into lovely roving and yarn appreciated by fiber artists across the country.

Ben is the hillbilly in Tarheelbilly Farm. A native West Virginian, he is wild about maple syrup. He roams the woods carefully managing and maintaining the sugar bush. He also spends time in the woodshop, building all of the wooden ware that we use in our apiary. In 2018, we began offering bee frames and boxes for purchase.
