We have a flock of Katahdin Sheep at Church View Farm. Katahdins are very hardy and easy to care for. They are a domestic breed of "hair sheep" which means that they do not have a thick coat of wool and do not need to be sheared like regular wool type sheep breeds. The breed was developed in Maine with the goal of developing a "meat sheep that did not require shearing" and is a result of selective crossbreeding and refinement of primarily Tunis, Southdown, Suffolk, St Croix and Wiltshire Horn breeds. More information is also available at the Katahdin Hair Sheep International web site. We are very interested in seeing other producers establish local Katahdin flocks as they are perfectly suited to our area of rolling hills and grazing fields. Sheep are not as selective in their grazing as cattle and can actually improve the quality of the land with their grazing habits. Each year, typically in in the June time frame, we have high quality ewe lambs and ram lambs for sale to expand or establish other Katahdin flocks. We also sell 100 - 130 pound market lambs in September of each year. Orders can be taken for processed whole and half lambs which are processed in October each year. Processing is done at a USDA inspected facility, Flying W Farms, in Burlington, WV. At times, we also have processed lamb cuts on hand for sale at the farm, typically beginning in October. A lamb information and order sheet can be found Here. Please feel free to contact us with any questions or if any additional information is required. The web provides a wealth of information about lamb, and one of the best is from the American Lamb Board. We are members of the Potomac Highlands Katahdin Cooperative, a group of local farms that raise Katahdin sheep.
