The breeds of our flock are Dorper and Katahdin. These are both “hair sheep” varieties, meaning they shed a heavy winter coat of fur in the springtime. This has been a good fit for our farm as they are comfortable in our hot summers and chilly winters, and also because they produce tender and non-gamey “clean” tasting cuts of meat with no lanolin taste (because they have hair and not wool). We maintain the sheep without any hormones or antibiotics. The sheep are managed through rapid rotational grazing to keep them healthy while allowing them to maintain and fertilize our orchards.
