Windrush Farm is a working sheep farm in Chileno Valley, California.


Founded in 1995 by Mimi Luebbermann, the farm grew from an intention of living simply, farming fiber, and functioning as a quiet space for Luebbermann’s longstanding writing career.


With the help of Mimi’s son, Arann Harris, Windrush Farm has since evolved into an educational facility educating and entertaining Bay Area children and adults about farm life, wool, and the real world of animals, grass and sunshine.

  1. Hi Mimi,

    My friend Mia Pelletier from MALT just told me about your camp. My daughter Stella has been begging to go to a “farm camp” with her friend Amelia…I can’t tell you how excited she was when I told her about your farm! She jumped up and down with excitement. I just signed her up for a summer session. I’m so glad we found you – thank you for offering this special opportunity!

    Best, Julie Mozena

  2. I’ve been hoping to take a class on carding and spinning and other work with raw wool with my granddaughter, who is 6. Do you offer anything like that or do you know anyone who does? The yarn store in Petaluma gave us your name.

  3. Dear Mimi and Aaron,

    My daughters are anxiously anticipating their summer time at Windrush Farms! When can we expect the summer 2013 registration form/schedule to be available?

    Thanks! Erika Cerutti

  4. I would love to bring my 19 month old son out to see your baby lambs. Can you tell me what day and times we could do this? Are there other baby animals to see? Thank you.

  5. Hello…I have a registered Shetland Sheep Ram…do u have a registered ewe for sale… I am in your area this week…would be going to a really nice farm for ever…

  6. My friend, Anna Margaroli (she lives in Argentina) gave me your contact info September 28 I am preparing an asado dinner, and may be in need of a lamb. Please let me know if you have any available, lead time, expense, procedure, etc. Much appreciated!

  7. HI there-
    I’m interested in bringing a girl scout troop of 12 first graders to your beautiful ranch for a tour. I was looking for any weekend spring event days you may have coming up or if you would be willing to work with us for a fee on a weekend….I’m also interested in finding out if you are having your camp this summer.

  8. Hello! I heard about Windrush from a mom who lives nearby. We, my husband and I, take care of our almost 2 year old grand daughter on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Will you be scheduling your 2015 classes soon? And, if so, will there be any on those days?

  9. Hi Mimi, My mother Margaret Parkerson mentioned you and the farm to me. I’ve been involved in similar environments working with kids and would love to see what you are doing. I am a video producer here in Marin and thought you might have some potential for a segment to be shown locally if you would be interested. Thanks, Tim Olson
