Amy Ross Manko travels the country (and now the world) teaching, researching and writing about her favorite topic - Rare Breed Sheep! When she’s not on the road, spreading the gospel of critically endangered livestock, she’s at home on her historic farm raising 11 breeds of heritage and rare breed sheep, as well as cattle, draft horses, mini-donkeys and poultry. She is the owner of Ross Farm Fibers Inc and provides love and shelter to homeless fiber equipment.
Notes from the PLY team
Amy is one of the most passionate and knowledgable fiber people that we know. She has spent so much of her life taking care of the sheep that feed our craft and we're so grateful. She started the Sheep on the Edge feature in PLY and is the most consistent writer about sheep that are, in fact, on the edge. Take this class if you can fit in in your schedule, it'll be worth it.
Amy is teaching this class (and we’re offering it several times because it’s important and we want everyone to get a chance to take it):
