For more than 30 years, we have raised COOPWORTH SHEEP that genetically stem from New Zealand Registered CSSNZ Coopworths imported to the US in 1979. They produce twins and often triplets; large, lustrous, silky soft fleeces; and mild, succulent tasting lamb.

No. 509 and her first lamb…"509" was a yearling then.  We called her Piglet…she is Pig's daughter, and herself, a triplet.  Normally, we don't breed ewe lambs, but that's not to say they don't sometimes breed! 

 

We also raise/graze registered AHCA SCOTTISH HIGHLAND cattle! Highland cattle are docile, hardy, easy calvers, and excellent foragers--traits exhibited by our sheep. Highlands produce a soft undercoat 'hair' for felting and crafts and mild, low fat, exceptional tasting beef. 

 

                     

 

Registered AHCA Highland Bull,"Glenfiddich", one of the very nicest bulls you'll ever meet!

Our Sheep and Cattle are raised "organically and naturally"--almost wholly on pasture and treated with essential oil therapies.  No antibiotics and no vaccines are used unless absolutely and without question necessary and only as a last resort.  A barley mix is fed to the ewes and cows during lambing and calving when there is too little grass to support their needs nutritionally.  The ewes are supplemented with 2nd and 3rd growth alfalfa hay we purchase locally during gestation / lactation.

 

The farm is located in the eastern Alleghenies, an hour west of the Shenandoah National Park in Virginia, nestled in a most beautiful mountain valley, my father once compared to that of 'Little Tibet" of surprisingly unique flora and fauna. 

  

 

 

We thank you & hope you'll visit our site often to see changes in photos and news events and maybe even, HOPE"S Ramblings from time to time.  The good news is Hope's finally figured out how to manipulate and manage this site…WooHoo 2015!
