We raise 100% grass-fed & grass finished lamb here in Geauga County, Ohio. Our grass fed lamb is unlike like any other; mild & superior tasting. Just try it & any preconceived ideas of what lamb used to taste like will disappear, & you may well be a convert for life!
Our sheep herd is a cross of Katahdin/Dorper - these 2 breeds are known as hair sheep since they are self shedding, similar to horses. They are also classed as a meat breed.
We prefer to keep our herd at a size where we know & can identify each of our ewes, so we have @ 25 breeding females at any given time. It is also much easier to catch potential issues quickly since we know their quirks & personalities. We can vouch for the very pleasant, gentle, curious natures of the ewes & their lambs.
Our sheep are raised on pasture & are moved daily from April - October (generally following the cows in rotation which has many benefits, including that they rarely need to be wormed & they eat grasses & forbs that our cows don't). They always have free access to salt, minerals & fresh water. In the Winter they are fed good quality hay when the pastures are dormant.
Our lambs are never fed grain, just their mom's milk & various legumes, forbs & grasses from our pastures which have not been sprayed with any pesticides or man made fertilizers for over 30 years.
Over the last 8 years we have bred for specific traits - all of our ewes are exceptional mothers & their offspring mature early, they have above average internal parasite resistance & tolerance which reduces the need for worm medicines (our ewes are wormed once a year) & they usually can breed out of season. 95% of our herd fully shed their coat each year without having to be sheared, leaving their hair in the pastures & on the fences for other animals/ birds to take for building warm nests.
Our herd is closed which means that we have purchased our foundation herd of ewes & any replacement stock is chosen from the ones born on the farm. Occasionally we will buy a new ram from trusted, like minded farmers.
