About Us / Laughing Goat Fiber History: We specialize in home-grown exotic fibers - mohair, alpaca and cashmere, and create original hand-made fiber goods. Our Angora goats, Cashmere goats, Alpacas, and sheep provide us with the luxurious fibers we turn into roving, yarns and exotic yarn blends that are great for fiber crafts, or folks can purchase high quality, one-of-a-kind-made-on-the-farm heirloom blankets, rugs, shawls, scarves and other items. Since we're close to Cornell we work with the Cornell Vet School, and Cooperative Extension to improve our farming and animal husbandry and increase the vet school students' knowledge of these wonderful animals. We are interested in expanding our farm tours, raising a heritage sheep breed such as hog island, or hebridean or soay; working with apprentices and interns; and in sustainable practices for raising fiber animals such as rotational grazing.
