About Us:

We are a small farm nestled between the mountains and ridges in West Central Pennsylvania. Our goal is to breed an easy care sheep that is structurally correct, has great mothering instincts, does well on pasture, weans twins consistently, doesn't need constant deworming, has decent growth, good muscling and sheds clean.
This kind of sheep doesn't just happen. Things like breed type, management and climate are part of it, but .......... there are things like genetic selection, heavy culling, keeping good records, and using tools like EBV'S to help select superior stock.
NSIP (National Sheep Improvement Program) is one of the tools we use to select sheep that meet our criteria. After using rams with very good EBVs for FEC (low fecal egg counts) and high 60 weight numbers and we can see the difference it can make. Our goal is to have a sheep with balanced EBVs. ?
Our ewes are pastured from April to November weather and grass permitting. We like a Medium framed ewe that is built stout enough to carry twins and triplets easily. Early maturing and the ability to lamb as a yearling is also a must.
