We run a small herd of registered katahdin hair sheep. 4 ewes and 1 ram produce a few sheep to sell to other breeders and meat producers as well as fill freezers for us and our customers.
Hair sheep are the perfect sheep for our table. Lanolin, the oil produced with sheep wool, also contributes to the "gamey" or "muttony" taste in sheep. Hair sheep do not produce wool -- they produce hair and shed annually -- and without wool they are also without lanolin. This means that the meat of a hair sheep isn't gamey but tastes more like a very nice, grass-fed piece of beef. The meat is very low in fat, tender, and delicious!
Please contact us if you are interested in getting on our wait list for lamb for your farm or freezer. Sheep is sold at live at around 7 months of age and is ready for you to process or raise. We process at Kelso Meats in Snohomish or Silvana Meats in Silvana and we can help coordinate processing.
