Lambs are born and raised on pasture. Our animals thrive in this pastoral setting. They are rotationally grazed with portable electric fences. This provides optimal nutrition for the sheep, as well it supports quick regrowth for the plants. We select our breeding ewes and rams carefully for resistance to parasites and animals that grow well on grass.
Katahdins make a great easy care option for lawn mowers and pets. Our sheep are thrifty and eat down weeds that others might avoid. They shed their hair naturally each spring, so no shearing is necessary. Energy is put into meat rather than wool. They flock well and live each day with our Livestock Guardian Dog (LGD), who protects the them from predators.
Katahdins produce a mild flavored and lean meat. Whether some quick chops get thrown on the grill or a leg simmers in sauce all day, this lamb is delicious. We love our sheep. This makes for happy and healthy sheep and you can taste the difference.
Know Your Farmer
Whole lamb: The entire lamb is sold by weight and we transport it to the butcher. The customer chooses how it will be cut. Some people keep the lamb whole for festivals or cut it themselves. Others specify the particular cuts to the butcher and pick it up packaged and frozen. Customers pick up the meat and pay the butcher cost directly. The meat cost is paid to us according to its weight.
By July we have 60-80 lbs. live weight lambs and 90 lb lambs after September.
Lambs are harvested locally at a family butcher in a humane way. While we do not butcher on the farm, customers with butchering experience can harvest their own lambs on farm according to their religious beliefs.
