About the Farm

Naturally raised lamb and resilient sheep from the Highlands of Northern New Mexico

After purchasing  48 acres 16 miles north of Las Vegas NM in 1999 we built a barn and started raising sheep in 2001. Since then we have installed a stock watering system, numerous fenced pastures, sheep shelters, a chicken palace and a goose shelter. The farm has a colony of barn cats for rodent control and 4 great Pyrenees dogs to protect the flock from wild predators and neighbors dogs.

Later we began brooding chicks for our own use and for contract sale. This expanded into the winter layer breeding project. Geese were added later because of their relative scarcity and because chickens and turkeys are somewhat incompatible.

Rams at work -- keeping healthy until needed for breeding
