Sheep thrive on a high quality pasture. They graze along side our goats, eating a variety of grasses and clover through the summer and hay in the winter
We raise a Dorper/Khatahdin cross and breed our herd of ewes each fall so that they give birth in early spring. This allows us to improve the genetics of the herd each year, raising healthier and heartier animals with each passing season as we select ewes that do well on our pastures and our farm. We also have the advantage of lambs who live their entire lives in one place, reducing their stress since they never have to travel. They stay with their mothers and that bond between the animals keeps both the lamb and the ewe happier and calmer.
