The Sheep
 
We started with a small commercial flock of Katahdin and Katahdin cross ewes, one Katahdin ram and one Dorper ram as a means to keep our twenty acres from being a fire hazard in the summer. 
 
I had so much fun with the commercial flock, that I decided to branch into an all-purpose breed that might actually pay for itself in the long run.  After extensive research, I decided on Finn sheep, or Finnish Landrace as they are known in the country they came from.  Finns are a lovely, multi-purpose breed that has a beautiful, fine, lustrous fleece; excellent milking capabilities; excellent mothering abilities; sweet, non-gamey meat; and they produce litters (3 to 6) of lambs when they are mature!  They are very docile and tame with very little handling. 
 
Finns
We currently have one of the largest selection of Finnsheep for sale in California!  We have adult stock for sale year round, and lambs available seasonally.  Contact us any time  if you are interested in mature or proven stock.
 
 
 
 











We still have several ewe lambs from February to March of 2016.  The ewes are now bred back for new lambs for 2017.
 Contact us if you want to reserve a special lamb before it's born, or request a specific pairing for next year. 
 
 
 The 2017 lambing season has begun!  We already have 9 lambs as of January 25, 2017!  Scroll down to the ewes to see who has had what!

Lambed 1-22-17 with triplets.  One white ram, one white ewe, and one brown pied ewe.  She was part of a jail break (clearly, I need to fortify some fences! ) I believe the whites are Rivet's, and the brown pied is Argos'.  I will DNA test them prior to sale.  Those were the two rams that broke down fencing, fighting through it.  She was originally in with Argos.
