Farm, Sheep & Wool – Art Gallery – Bed & Breakfast
At Whitefish Bay Farm the past meets the present. The farm was established in 1906 and has since operated continuously as an agricultural enterprise. We are Gretchen and Dick Regnery and we have owned and operated the farm since 1983. Since that time, we have restored and expanded the original 1908 American Foursquare farmhouse, which we opened as a Bed and Breakfast in 1991. We began our flock of white and naturally colored Corriedale sheep in 1990. Since purchasing the farm, we have operated the Art Gallery located in the granary barn.
In 2020 we made a major decision to modify our operation. While we have not retired, we have permanently closed the Bed and Breakfast. The Art Gallery was also closed onsite, but it continues to offer online a unique collection of handweavings and yarns, many of which are hand dyed, using only natural dye sources. The flock is still the center piece of the agricultural enterprise, which uses sustainable farming practices. Our wool is sold worldwide to handspinners and it is also used to produce the yarn sold by the farm.
Sadly, due to the current worldwide health problems, the farm is no longer open to the public. Our fiber products are still available for sale online. We will miss our visits with longtime guests and gallery customers who have also become good friends. We hope to maintain contact with all of you.
