The sheep and cattle are our core business,  
all our other activities revolves around this.

We have our  Sarplaninac guardian dogs to protect the sheep and cattle from predators.
The border collies help us work with our stock and to be efficient in handling them.

Our goal is to raise healthy, robust sheep and cattle, grow to the point of being able to market our meat products directly to the consumer through farmgate sales.
We finish our own cattle and lambs to butcher weight. 
We buy in feeder lambs and finish them on the ranch.
We feed them locally grown hay, barley and peas. 

 

Sheep

We raise commercial dorset and suffolk crosses. 
Our sheep are used for grazing projects in the summer months and produce slaughter lambs.
Our goal is to produce top quality lamb and build a market of direct farm sales.
We finish most of our own lambs to slaughter weight on the ranch. 
Every year we sell a number of lambs, both ewe lambs and market lambs, to various 4-H Clubs.
