Before there was a Wool Mill

We would like to begin a series on the history of the Brown Sheep Company to fill in the holes left by our Frequently Asked Questions section.

Harlan Brown was a farmer in western Nebraska. For 35 years he farmed the family land. During this time, he developed an interest in wool and the sheep that produce it. As he collected larger and larger flocks of sheep, he became facinated with the wool production process. This fascination led to his involvement with the American Sheep Council, and the Midwest Wool Growers Association. This company officially started in 1980 as a family owned and operated business.


Mitchell, Nebraska - our hometown!

Intro to the Mitchell area: it is not all corn fields. The northwestern quarter of Nebraska is beautiful, with rolling hills and right behind the wool mill, sandbluffs. You can see the line of bluffs in the background here. I chose a winter shot because right now it is about 100 degrees and we need some hope of cooler weather.
