OUR SHEEP

At Shepherd's Way Farms our sheep are raised with the goal of giving them the best life possible. For us, this means providing them with beautiful rich pastures to graze (with a mixture of grasses and forbs), fresh air, clean water, available shelter, and attentive loving care. While they enjoy spending time outdoors in the winter, snow doesn't allow much grazing so we also provide them with hay and, when they are pregnant and milking, carefully selected and measured quantity of mixed small grains.


While grazing and roaming outdoors is beneficial for the sheep, it is also helps the environment. Regenerative grazing improves soil health and plant biodiversity. Plus, it is sheep grazing the west pasture at sunset is simply beautiful!


Our sheep are East Friesian crosses, which is a dairy breed originating in Friesland, Northern Germany.
