Hope you enjoy these pictures of our Baad Woolies....
Please scroll down for more information on them.
OK....our sheep aren't really THAT baaad. Even if they do figure out how to get through the fence we just fixed a week ago. They are beautiful and curious and love grazing the hillsides and pastures here at Riverdale Ridge. . .
They certainly do flock together and so seldom is one into something without at least a couple of accomplices! We raise Shetland sheep for their wool and meat. To learn more about the breed, please visit the following website;
We are taking reservations for lamb meat that will be available in the Fall. Each whole lamb can be reserved for $100.00 with the balance due at processing. The final cost, based on market price, will be determined at that time. Our lambs are born in early spring (Mar / Apr) and will be ready for sale in late fall (Nov / Dec). Those that are not reserved by October, will be sold at market in early winter (Dec / Jan).
We are also taking reservations for individual whole raw wool fleeces. Each of our ewe's fleeces are pictured here (sorry we are updating pics for 2015 and they will be available soon). You can request a specific ewe's fleece you would like (i.e. Pearl's fleece) and each one can be reserved for $25.00 with the balance due after shearing. Of course, the lamb fleeces will be different each year, but we will try to keep updated pictures available for all of them. Please just be aware that a Shetland lamb's fleece color usually changes as it grows. It may start out all black when it is born, but slowly become gray or white as it grows. We will be glad to send you a picture of it just prior to shearing to be more accurate.
Please go to the "Membership" page and click on the drop-down menu for "CSA Sign Up Sheet" to reserve your lamb meat or wool. Thank you.
