A unique farm with registered Blue-faced Leicester sheep. We have a small flock - 8-12 sheep only. Lambs arrive from late March to end of April and are for sale and ready to go by June. The ewes and ram are chosen for: fleece luster; fiber strength; consistency of fiber throughout the animal; conformation (I tend to like the sheep to be substantial throughout the back and hind end as well as length of the back). Our sheep have great length without the "swayback".
The sheep share their pasture with Traveler, a Tennessee Walking Horse whose job is to herd and protect the sheep. All our sheep are covered year-round to protect their fleeces. Most of our fleeces are shown and sold either privately, or at the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival. We have won 1st place in the Bluefaced Leicester division of the MSWF from 2013 to 2018, in 2017 we were Reserve Grand Champion Fleece! If you are interested in clean, lustrous wool with amazing crimp that will create a wonderful draping garment, then contact us for fleeces. We also have breeding stock lambs for sale as well as young market rams for slaughter. Check us out on Facebook (under Margie Smith) or our website: marlindalefarm.net for updated information.
Exceptional fleece, fiber & artisan yarns for dying, spinning, knitting and weaving.
After years of looking — I purchased my dream farm in Marshall, Virginia and have a few more items on the To Do List in getting the farm ready for sheep this coming Fall — the new fencing is in and next on the list is putting up a barn - in the next month or so.
To start, I’ll be raising:
. Swedish Gotlands — for shimmering shades of silver fleece — darling black faces & legs. Their little lambs are all black and start to turn silver around a year or so.
. Will be adding a Fine White Wool breed in the next year or so.
I’ll be updating my farm listing in the near future, but in the meantime you can find me on these sites:

Registered purebred and percentage White Dorper meat sheep. Currently have 20 brood ewes. Breeding stock is available.
We sell USDA-inspected frozen lamb directly from the farm -- whole, half, or individual cuts. Our lambs are ready for market at about 8 months of age.
We prefer fall lambing because the lambs grow better in the cold weather and parasites are not as much of an issue.
While the White Dorpers do not grow enough wool to require shearing, the lamb pelts are beautiful and super-soft. We have tanned sheepskin pelts.
