Hello and welcome to Fair Winds Llama Ranch. We are a retired military family enjoying this new life chapter outside Helena, MT.
Steve retired, after combined years of service and four deployments, as a helicopter pilot in both the Marines and the Montana National Guard.
Nancy retired from the Navy after years as an officer in Fleet Support, and we traveled west to find some mountains to call home. We were blessed to raise two lovely daughters and are now enjoying our amazing grandchildren!
In 2016, we purchased the Star Castle Fiber Mill in Oregon and moved it to Helena. We are pleased to enjoy the adventure of producing beautiful batts, roving, and yarns from our own animals and from fiber producers throughout the northwest United States. We are also enjoying adding these fibers to our new textile adventures and taking them to venues throughout the western US.
We look forward to seeing you at our venues this year. Come by and get to know us and see what we do. We love talking about the animals and all our new fiber and textile adventures!
