Breed Status:  Recovering


Shetland Sheep

Lovely and Gentle 
Delightful to Both the Eye and the Hand

We added sheep to our farm for two very simple reasons. Fiber and meat.  Choosing the right breed, however, was far less simple.  We knew we needed our sheep to possess the following traits:

  • Small, Manageable Size

  • Gentle Temperament

  • Hardiness

  • Strong Foraging Ability

  • Hornless or Polled

  • Excellent Fiber Quality

  • Mild, Delicious Meat

The four Shetland lambs (one ram and three ewes) arrived first.  They were followed shortly thereafter by the three Miniature Cheviot lambs (one ram and two ewes).  Both breeds have their strengths and weaknesses.


It took about a year to decide which breed best suited our personalities, our purposes, our land, and our climate.  After much deliberation, the Shetlands prevailed and the Miniature Cheviots were sold to a local farmer.

Our little herd of four grew to 13 in just two years and we reached the point where we had rams to provide us with meat.  We had been told that Shetland meat was rich and sweet - and not at all gamey like other mutton.  Honestly, we were skeptical.  No more!
