We have a small herd of Katahdin Hair Sheep. Katahdins are bred to produce a mild, delicious meat but no wool. They thrive on our lush pasture and are finished on grass. They are not fed antibiotics or hormones. We do use a grain supplement for the first few months for any of our lambs that are bottle raised.
The antics of our sheep in the pasture are a delight for our farm visitors, children and adults alike. Our current ewes were all raised by us as bottle lambs, so they are very people friendly. Presently, we have put herd building on hold, so we only process a few lambs every year, generally in the Spring.
