Alli and her Texel lambs at the Fauquier Fair.



Luke with one of our yearling rams, freshly shorn. They are Suffolk/Texel cross.

We raise our lambs on a mostly grass diet to finish in the Fall at a nice Market weight of around 100lbs. The ewes are Jacobs or Jacobs Cross, and the Sires are a meat breed such as Suffolk or Dorset. This gives us a lamb that is not only hardy but grows reasonably well, and finishes with a nice mild flavor.

In the Spring time the lambs grow fast! Some reach 40lbs at around 2 months of age and are ready for weaning. Lambs for breeding stock, or just to raise on your own are available at this time. Please call to determine availability.
