Katahdin "Hair" Sheep
Pretty little ewe lamb we call My Little Pony - born April of 2011.

We pride ourselves in raising our sheep with the utmost compassion and respect. We are proud to say that we are an "Animal Welfare Approved" farm.

The flock consists of pure Katahdin sheep, a breed of sheep known to be low maintenance, easy-care sheep that are highly parasite-resistant and have good hooves. hair sheep do not produce a fleece so do not require shearing. Their coats shed in the summer months and then regrow in time for the cold of winter. Lambs produce a lean, high quality meat that consistently offers a very mild flavor.

From spring through fall, our flock spends its time rotated between pastures of Orchard grass/ Alfalfa and Lakota Prairie Brome grass. Each pasture is allowed to rest and restore before moving sheep back on to it. There are plenty of shade trees for them to rest under and unlimited access to fresh well water year round. The sheep are also supplemented with natural minerals that ensure their health.

In winter, they can choose to spend their time in the pasture eating hay from feeders or rest in the barn on wheat straw bedding. During the winter of 2009-2010, they spent a lot of time in the barn while the record snows piled up outside. Many times we find them comfortably resting in the barn with our guardian dogs sprawled alongside.
