Le Tropeau… meet the flock

These animals have been raised with love and care and respect. We have taken the difficult decision to reduce the size of our flock in order to earn off-farm income. Please use the contact form on the home page to make an inquiry about re-homing them for your own regenerative farming project. They are herd animals and must be in groups. We are offering a minimum of 4 at $450 each.

Ces animaux ont été élevés avec amour, soin et respect. Nous avons pris la décision difficile de réduire la taille de notre troupeau afin de gagner un revenu ailleurs. Veuillez utiliser le formulaire de contact de la page d’accueil pour nous demander de les accueillir dans le cadre de votre propre projet d’agriculture régénératrice. Ce sont des animaux de troupeau et ils doivent être en groupe. Nous offrons un minimum de 4 animaux à 450 $ chacun.

Breeding Program

We started with East Fresian and Shetland ewes in 2013 and added East Fresian, British Milk Sheep and Icelandic ewes in 2017, bringing in rams of different wool breeds to enhance the genetic diversity of the flock and improve the quality of the wool. We now have a flock of hardy ewes with beautiful wool, healthy hooves and udders who thrive in a rotational grazing system, foraging on mature, re-naturalized perennial pasture and hay from the same fields. They are excellent mothers who give birth to vigorous lambs, unattended. The lambs grow to a modest size during the grazing season and provide meat of exceptional quality and taste.
