The rural way of life is challenging. Attempting to sustain a family ranch across multiple generations can bring about some difficult complications. The Helle family has run sheep on Carter Creek just outside of Dillon Montana for 5 generations now. The same area sheep were first brought into the State. In this Under the Big Sky story, John and Even Helle share their strategies for keeping a family business going and what they each brought back to add value to the wool they raise and ultimately the Ranch they love.
Duckworth is the world’s only source-verified, single-origin, merino wool apparel company. Raised and shorn on the Helle ranch outside Dillon, MT as well as certified Duckworth Wool cooperative growers.
