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.

We have been raising sheep since 1998. In 2006 we converted our Suffolk flock to a purebred Border Cheviot flock. We show all over the country and maintain quality show and breeding stock.
Our flock has influences from Chuck and Denise Orr (Misty Acres), John Eaton (Triple J Acres), Sue Traglia, and Judy Moore. We strive to raise and produce stock that not only excels in the show ring, but also in the field. Our sheep perform well for not only us, but most importantly our buyers.
Some of our accomplishments over the years have included: Supreme Champion Ram - North East Youth Sheep Show, First Place Intermediate Ram Lam - North American International Livestock Expo, Supreme Champion Ram - Maryland State Fair, Champion Ram and Ewe - Keystone International Livestock Expo, Champion Ram and Ewe - Delaware Livestock Expo, Supreme Champion Ram and Ewe - Frederick County Fair, Supreme Champion Ram and Ewe - Howard County Fair.
We were also pleased to be the Cheviot Premier Exhibitor at the Maryland State Fair and the Overall Meat Breeds Premier Exhibitor at the Frederick County Fair in 2012.
