About Us:

WE HAVE BEEN BREEDING FINNSHEEP FOR ALMOST 20 YEARS. THIS RARE BREED (AROUND 500 REGISTERED IN THE USA ANNUALLY) PRODUCES LITTERS OF LAMBS - - ON AVERAGE 3 TO 4 LAMBS PER LITTER. FINNSHEEP HAVE BEEN WIDELY USED IN CROSSBREEDING TO INCREASE FERTILITY AND PROLIFICACY IN COMMERCIAL FLOCKS. TODAY, FINNSHEEP ARE BEGINNING TO BE APPRECIATED AS IDEAL FOR THE SMALL FARM FLOCK. THEY PROVIDE LOTS OF LAMBS TO SELL SINCE THEY CAN BE BRED TO LAMB MORE THAN ONCE A YEAR. OUR SIX EWES PRODUCED 26 LAMBS THIS YEAR. IN ADDITION THESE SHEEP PRODUCE HIGHLY LUSTROUS WOOL WITH A VERY SOFT HAND SOUGHT AFTER BY SPINNERS.
