The spring
of 2012 our first set of quadruplets were born to Dot & Leo.  She is a remarkable mother and raised all four lambs on pasture - we are retaining her two ewes and a ram lamb.

Katahdin Hair Sheep are an American breed originally developed by Mr. Piel in Maine. Developed in the 1970’s they are named after a mountain in Maine.      

Chosen for the farm, Katahdin Sheep are a medium size breed that are:
*hardy & more parasite tolerant than wool sheep;
*good mothers that can pasture lamb;
*low maintenance - no shearing or tail
docking needed;
*a duel purpose breed of sheep (meat & milk) whose carcasses are well-muscled with lean, mild flavored meat;
*a browsing breed of sheep, they help improve the farmland;
* they are a docile breed so are easily handled;
*a good breed for grass/forage based management systems;
*come in many colors and color combinations.

We sell registered and pure bred Katahdin ewes and rams for breeding, pasture control and as an added value to cattle herds & cattle farming. Starter flocks are sold for beginning shepherds – however, only a limited number are available each year.    

Market lambs
and yearlings are sold at the farm. The price includes delivery to one of three processing plants of the buyers choice – all  within 20 miles of the farm. Vincent and Hyde are WV state licensed plants located in Shinnston, WV  Young & Stout is a state licensed and federally inspected plant in Clarksburg, WV.   All processing plants require a prearranged appointment for the processing of lambs & yearling sheep.  The cuts desired and cost are paid by the buyer of the lambs and yearling sheep.

Tanned sheep hides are also available upon special request.  A sample is available for viewing.
