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:
- Uncastrated lambs to supplement others' breeding programs.
- Castrated males.
- 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.
