Sheep

Our flock has evolved to a commercial flock rather than a single breed. We have added a Texel ram, who will be a terminal sire to our commercial flock, as well as a few purebred Texel ewes.  This will allow us to offer a better commercial product as well as purebred Texel sheep. Texel cross lambs grow faster than purebred Texel lambs and offer superior carcass quality over other crosses. 

We have been very happy with the resulting lambs!

Our Ram
Our Ewes

Our ewes are chosen for their maternal traits and the quality of the lambs they produce.  Our ideal ewe is able to lamb unassisted and to maintain a  good body condition on a mostly grass fed diet.
