In 1972 a boatload of draft-dodging, peace-loving hippies showed up at the west end of Amherst Island. Since then, Topsy Farms has prioritized stewardship of the land and harmony with nature above profit.
Topsy raises happy sheep; winter makes better wool. Topsy offers 100% Canadian sheep wool blankets and natural products to the eco-ethical kindred spirits out there. Our Connect to the Land programs give back to the community by offering green spaces of calm and quiet to visitors.
We are encouraging citizens to plant food and are offering free advice, videos, and a database of resources. We shut down voluntarily, 2 full weeks before ordered to do so.
What People Are Saying
” We visited last summer. We gave them a heads up we were coming and were welcomed warmly, we were invited to meet the lambs (some cuddles were necessary), and we were also able to visit the wool shed and make some purchases. The blankets are gorgeous and will last forever. The yarn is a beautiful quality with great colours available. “
” Bought a third lambskin for my third grandchild at the request of my younger daughter. Lambskin arrived in no time at all, with the picture of the sheep on the front and a personalized note welcoming the “new baby” to the world. Nice touch! Much appreciated. Thanks Topsy! “
” Great place for the whole family. Numerous activities during the whole year. Not just a sheep farm! Friendly and engaging owners. A must stop when on Amherst Island or across on the mainland. “
