2021 lambing news: Our first lamb arrived April 13! Due to a few reservation cancellations, we will have a few lambs available. Watch the “Sheep for Sale” page in early May for info on lambs for sale. If you want a breeding ram, let me know soon so I can leave one intact for you.
Our family has been raising registered Olde English Babydoll Southdown sheep for over twenty years. We breed for excellence in conformation and mothering ability/udders. We also like a good fleece. We have sheared, carded, spun, and knitted their wool, milked them and made various cheeses, and butcher lambs for our freezers each year. We also sell breeding stock to help other producers start or strengthen their flocks.
Our flock was established by Janette in the mid-90s with a pair of sheep which were part of the foundation flock when the classic-style Southdowns were renamed Babydolls and established as a breed. It is now managed by us, Ben and Laura, Janette and Bill’s son’s family. Lambing happens at our place, 5 miles west of the home farm. The flock has really grown on us, both literally and figuratively, since the shepherding torch was passed to us in 2011.
We are members of both the North American Babydoll Southdown Sheep Registry (NABSSAR) and the Olde English Babydoll Registry (OEBR):
We expect to have lambs available each year. Lambing will be in April; weaning in July.
