Abby Smith, 22, cleans a fleece from a recently sheered sheep at her home in Auburn. Smith, a third generation farmer on the White Ingram Smith Harris (W.I.S.H.) farm, raises sheep but cleans this fleece for a customer. Smith’s great-grandfather, Ingram White, bought the 27-acre farm with money from working in logging camps in northern Maine. Smith studied sustainable agriculture at Kennebec Valley Community College and runs the farm with her “future sheep dog” River, who is 15 weeks old. (Daryn Slover/Sun Journal)
