Our sheep are raised naturally, without unnecessary antibiotics, and with lots of spoiling and love.

At various times throughout the year, we are able to provide the following:

  1. Uncastrated lambs to supplement others' breeding programs.
  2. Castrated males.
  3. Castrated males, grown out (finished) ready for butcher, usually done by prior arrangement, for those who are unable to raise their own for any number of reasons.
