Janet Garman

Timber Creek Farm


Janet Garman is a farmer and freelance writer in Maryland. A career in writing began after the nest emptied. All the years of studying farm management and raising many species of livestock (along with a full house of children) led her to begin sharing her experience on a farm-themed blog and website. Her background includes a degree in large animal farm management and animal science from the University of Maryland, plus decades of farm and homesteading experience. Her published books include Keeping Sheep and Other Fiber Animals, 50 DIY Projects for Your Chickens, Chickens from Scratch: Raising Your Own Chickens from Hatch to Egg Laying and Beyond, Habitat Housing for Rabbits, and Margarita and the Beautiful Gifts. She lives in Crownsville, Maryland.

Janet will be speaking at the Maryland Fairs

Hear about tools and materials, easy-to-find natural dye plants, and items from your kitchen to use for dying wool. Bring questions!
