A farm, with a view of the Blue Ridge mountains, that provides tranquility and serenity.
A farm where all ewes respond to their names!
A farm with a tenacious manager: Gaby, our English shepherd, has a job to do.
Raising sheep is a passion and a childhood dream that became a reality, here in Virginia.
Lambs are raised on their mother's milk for 8 to 10 weeks and then in lush pastures. We interact with them with love and passion. For that reason, we raise only 40 lambs each year to give them -and their mothers - the daily attention and time they deserve.
We practice rotational grazing to conform to the sheep's natural grazing tendencies, and do keep our fields clean with a "paddock groomer", in an efficient and chemical-free way to control worms and parasites for healthier livestock and pastures.
Tunis is the oldest heritage sheep breed, present in the U.S. since 1799, and on a "watch" status of the Livestock Conservancy Priority List
Our flock is registered with the National Tunis Sheep Registry, Inc. and is enrolled in the National Scrapie Eradication Program, a USDA surveillance program.
Every 2 weeks, we check the health of our flock (hooves' care/FAMACHA) in order to to produce happy, healthy lambs.
Tunis ewes are excellent mothers, heavy milkers, and are easy to handle with a docile temperament.
We lamb only once a year, not 3 times in 2 years, and have only Tunis, "a breed apart".
The meat from Tunis lambs is known for its quality and tenderness, and has been judged "the most flavorful and best tasting" by the American Livestock Breeds Conservancy.
We take pride in being able to offer the finest premium lamb possible: no antibiotics, no growth hormone or stimulant.
Grass-fed healthy lamb. Pure and Simple.
