Rare Breed Conservation

Mother sniffs LambOne of the major goals of our farm is rare breed conservation.  You can help save rare breeds by buying rare breed products.  All products sold support the year-round expenses of the flock.

We have chosen the Cotswold as our primary focus. We chose the Cotswold breed for our farm because of its large size, hardiness in a forage based hillside system, mild temperament, mild flavor, and beautiful long wool.

The Cotswold sheep breed is  listed as “Threatened” by The Livestock Conservancy.

The beauty and genius of a work of art may be reconceived, though its first material expression be destroyed; a vanished harmony may yet again inspire the composer; but when the last individual of a race of living beings breathes no more, another heaven and another earth must pass before such a one can be again. – William Beebe, The Bird (1906)
