Over the years we have had many different types of sheep here on the farm. Currently we have Horned Dorsets, Hampshires, Scottish Blackface and a few commercial crossbred ewes. WE CURRENTLY HAVE USDA CERTIFIED CUTS OF LAMB AVAILABLE FOR SALE. contact us for details and a pickup schedule.
The Scottish Blackface sheep is another of the old breeds. They were the backbone of the hill country sheep industry for centuries and have been used for crossbreeding in many different ways. As a breed, they have impacted many of the breeds of sheep that we have today. Reported to be hardy and versatile, we decided to add a few late in 2014. Time will tell how well they will work for us here, but I am optimistic that they will produce well for us. UPDATE: The Scottish Blackface ewes have started lambing and so far are doing a good job. The Scottish Blackface ram was a very active breeder and we will have a good number of dorset/Scottish blackface wethers for sale
Hampshire sheep have been well known for producing fast growing, meaty lambs and have often been used as terminal sire on many wooled breeds. Large framed and heavily muscled, they are often used in the production of club lambs here in the southeast and around the country. We added a few in 2015 and hope to raise a number of good lambs and maybe a few rams to be used on crossbred flocks nearby.
