The Farmstead Store, behind The Country Estate features grassfed lamb and beef - sheepskins and gift items.
Lambing occurs during May. Over 1,000
lambs are born at this time and it is quite a busy time for the vacation homes.
On the farm is a small fold of Scottish Highland cattle. Co-grazing with the sheep has many environmental benefits.
The ewes, rams and lambs are always out on pasture eating the natural lush grasses on the farm.
The Great Pyrenees/Anatolian dogs live with the sheep and protect them from predators.
The Border Collies are always with the Shepherd - ready to work and move the flock when needed.
Tons of hay are made during the hot summer days to feed the animals during the winter months.
Every winter morning the sheep fall in line behind the tractor. Two tons of hay are fed daily.
The flock loves the snow! Their woolen coats are the best for warmth and to repel moisture.
Our scenic, 600 acre farm is nestled in the Dutch Corner Rural Historic District of Bedford County.
Our flock of 1,000 - 2,000 superior ewes, rams and lambs offers a first hand look at practical shepherding
and all natural pastoral agriculture. We do offer our natural lamb and beef for sale on the farm.
