Meats

NewDucks2

Our ducks enjoy the large two acre pond on our property.

In the last few years, we have worked towards a premium meat sheep that fattens on grass by mimicing the three-tier system used by the British. This system starts with a hill breed (like Shetland and Icelandic) and bred the ewe with a longer body breed (like a BLF ram). The ewe offsprings from that pairing are bred to a heavy meat breed (like a Texel). The results: lambs that are tender and great tasting because they are fatten on grass.
