About Patti Price
Growing up in Northern Virginia, Patti Price looked forward to visits to her grandparents’ Pendleton County, West Virginia, farm. After earning a Bachelor’s degree in Animal Science from Virginia Tech, Patti worked for a veterinarian and at Hazelton Laboratories in the DC area. She eventually moved to Pendleton County, where she lived for two years while working for Perdue. That job led her to Page County, where she operates Patchwork Pastures – natural colored wool, raw fleeces, roving and pelts. Patti sells most of her products at fiber festivals. Along with her husband, Julian, Patti also raises standard donkeys, goats, purebred Hereford and Hereford/Angus crossed open and bred heifers, as well as poultry.
Patti is a member of the boards of the Virginia Draft Horse and Mule Association and the Page County Farmers Association. She is also a member of the American Livestock Breeds Conservancy, the Loudoun Valley Sheep Producers Association and the Farm Home Advisory Committee.
