We raise East Friesian Sheep. East Friesians are lovely sheep which produce great amounts of beautiful milk to make unique aged cheeses. While making sheep milk cheese is not in our near future, we do raise the lambs til old enough to process them into delicious healthy lean lamb meat.
Our main objective with our sheep is for them to be healthy happy animals living their sheep life in our farm in Greensboro NC.
Our plan is for us to provide green pastures and nutritious hay for them to eat and forage over the seasons, to give them a haircut when spring and lambing time is approaching. To make them a cozy “nest” in the barn for the newborn lambs during harsh weather. To rotate them from pasture to pasture during the greens stages of the farm to ensure they get the best of the grasses and to avoid a high load of parasites on the soil. We care for them to have a sheep life, free as much as we can of any medicine other than good care and good nutritious food Mother Nature will provide. In exchange, they also care for us, we have first and foremost their beautiful beings roaming our place giving us great company, wool to keep us warm and meat to feed our bodies.
