In a Nutshell
Just having animals, and treating them like they were of no consequence is stupid. We have come to love each one of these animals on this property. They are nurtured and given the things that they need to live a good life. They are food for us and for others and to this we are thankful.
When we got into this life it was an easy decision, as it allowed us to have more breathing room and be more pro-active as to what we ate. I'm not really into grocery stores food quality these days. It's alot of work , more love , a sense of of accomplishment daily.
The interesting thing is that when we go into a big city now, I get tired watching the rushing about.
We are a small family farm. We raise registered Icelandic sheep, also chickens. Our guardians are Jack & Elliot, two llamas. We are bringing to our farm rare Gotlands, a beautiful sheep prized for their fabulous fleece, milk and mild flavoured meat.
All of our animals here are raised without the use of hormones or antibiotics, humanely raised, cage free, free range. The chickens are fed natural & certified organic feed and omega supplements.The sheep are totally grass fed along with alfalfa hay, with the occasional veggies, never grain as they don't require it at all.

* Our sheep are bred for fleece, meat. The thing I look for is the temperament to be calm and friendly, as it gets passed to the offspring. Also good horn conformation and build is important.

Our farm has a beautiful majestic apple orchard dating back to the beginning of this farm, the late 1800's. We are bringing it back and adding hard cider apples. One of our goals is to open a cider production facility. We are very excited about this and look forward to a fruitful outcome!
