2016 Ewes available (1+ year’s age) and ready to breed for fall lambs. We are sold out of stud rams from 2016. 2017 Lambs will be available for purchasing around June-July.
If you know what you want ahead of time, we take deposits to hold lambs or ewes.
We are cutting back on our flock this year and will be selling some of our seasoned ewes, born from 2015 - 2012. So, please check in with us for pricing options if you’re interested. Prices listed below are not set in stone, we’d be happy to make a deal if you’d like to acquire a handful of ewes or lambs.
We have had a closed flock since 2009 with our foundation stock coming from KBarK Farm (http://www.kbarkfarm.com/) in Pennsylvania. We are excited to have added 2 new rams last summer (2016), to bring in some new blood, from a farm in Indiana called, Hunter’s Dorsets. (http://www.hunterdorsets.com/) We are looking forward to this year’s crop of lambs, to see what the new genetics adds to our flock.
Our two new rams at one year’s age:
Most of our ewes will be bred to our Indiana rams, but we will also have a limited number of lambs available from our trusted rams, Jack & Pete, who have given us consistent numbers each year. This may be the last year for getting lambs from Jack & Pete, as we will be handing over the responsibility to the new rams.
Feel free to contact us with questions or availability of breeding stock for sale, both seasoned ewes and young lambs, as well as meat lambs to raise and slaughter yourself.
Since adding Dorset sheep to our farm we have been enjoying their great tasting meat and warm fleeces. The fleeces have proven their worth in the cold Vermont weather, and lend themselves to our wooden rocking chairs and cold car seats. We have them professionally tanned, and the suppleness of the hides give the fleeces an easy drape. As with any completely natural product, there are variations in color or texture which are completely normal. Each skin is unique and priced by size and condition. Average age of lamb fleeces is 6-12 months. All pelts are products of our sheep here at the NEK Sheep and Goat Farm.
