Hardscrabble Farm is a Shetland Sheep farm in Delaware Township, New Jersey. The farm is operated by Virginia Gifford and her mother, Shari.

Shetland Sheep

Our herd started with two Fine Fiber ewes from Whispering Pines in New York.


We process and spin our fleeces and offer spinning lessons and hand knitted items.


Original paintings of Hunterdon County settings as well as a variety of animals are available.


The farm was originally established in the 18th century on land purchased by Quakers from the Lenni Lenapi in 1706.
