The sheep go out on the grass for the first time in 2011.
In October of 2010 we decided to expand the farming operation to include some sheep. We were able to find a local breeder of Katahdin sheep, a hair sheep, which means that we don’t need to shear them. They will shed the wool that they grow over winter. We decided to start out small with 20 ewes and a ram and build our flock as we learn.
In March of 2011, our first lambs were born and the lambings continued on into May.
