Why dairy sheep?

We love the versatility of dairy sheep! What could be better than an animal that can give you beautiful wool, meat, and very nutritious milk? Our sheep are well socialized and full of personality. Sheep milk is much richer, containing higher amounts of fat, solids, and protein.  It is also naturally homogenized and is rich in essential vitamins and minerals. Our sheep milk tastes very similar to Nigerian Dwarf goat's milk. It's sweet tasting and very creamy. Our sheep milk components compares to Nigerian Dwarf's butterfat and protein percentages. 

We only breed polled (hornless) sheep. Our sheep are primarily East Friesian crosses. East Friesian are considered the heaviest milking breed of sheep. They normally produce twins, triplets, or quads and are easy lambers and great mothers. EF crosses tend to be much more hardy than purebreds. They are much hardier in health, go longer months in-between hoof trims, and are more parasite resistant. Tails are banded with rubber elastrator rings within 48 hrs after birth for health and sanitary purposes. 

Our sheep and goats are tested yearly for OPP and CAE with negative results.
