Northern New England Fibershed
Cultivating regional natural fiber systems in Vermont, New Hampshire, and Maine that nourish soil, protect land, and support community.
The Northern New England Fibershed aims to re-invigorate regional natural fiber systems in Vermont, New Hampshire, and Maine. We believe the best way to accomplish this is to support the individuals and businesses along our fiber supply chain in bringing fiber from raw material to finished product. We promote regenerative farming practices that are rooted in traditional Indigenous knowledge to nourish the soil and protect the land. Sanborn Mills Farm is happy to support the work of the NNEF.
