Description

Reservations Required & Limited

In order to reserve a lamb, you will need to place a $50 deposit for each lamb you would like to reserve. This deposit will hold your place on our list. Reservations go very quickly and we often have a waitlist. If you make a reservation and place a non-refundable deposit and we cannot provide you with what you have reserved OR if we decide to retain the lamb you have reserved, we WILL IMMEDIATELY refund your deposit.

We will NOT refund your deposit if you change your mind, if you have a change in circumstance, etc. We do our best to fulfill your request but offer no guarantees as we cannot decide the gender and final number of babies that will grace our farm in any given year!

2022 Lamb Availability & Pricing

All lambs (wethers and ewe lambs) will be $250 each, except Dairy Ram lambs for breeding which are East Friesian X Lacuane. Only excellent dairy ram lambs will be offered at $400, the rest will be wethers. We expect lambing to take place March 20th – April 15th with 2 ewes expected to lamb May 1st).

Most of the time, we prefer our ewes to raise their lambs until they are weaned, which is 6-8 weeks after they are born. There are circumstances when a lamb may leave the farm prior to being weaned, thus making it a ‘bottle baby.’ These are considered and offered on a case-by-case basis. The cost for any lamb (except Rams) will be $250 this year.

We will vaccinate lambs for CD&T upon request at no charge. Our sheep are naturally polled, though some have occasionally developed scurs. All of our adult sheep have been tested (negative) by our vet for OPP, CL, and Johnes with results available upon request. We do not ear tag our lambs but can microchip them for you for an additional $15.

Genetics & Breeding

Some dams are East Friesian crosses, East Friesian/Lacaune, some are Katahdin hair sheep crosses, and some are Wool crosses that include Coopsworth/Border Leicester, East Friesian, and some other unknown wool genetics. The wool blends do have lovely fleece, and all are appropriate for meat purposes.

Delivery

Delivery is available for an additional fee.

Adult Ewes

We have no adult ewes currently available, but that may change by mid-summer. Please let us know if you’d like to be notified if any become available.
