Sheep & Lambs For Sale

     SORRY, 2017 LAMBS ALL SPOKEN FOR
    We will be taking deposits for 2018 lambs starting Sept. 1 2017

    Folks buy sheep and lambs from us for all kinds of reasons: pets, starter flocks, feeder lambs (to raise and resell), and even as ‘lawnmowers’. We have three types of sheep available: Katahdin hair sheep, purebred Coopworths, and unregistered woolly crossbreds. 

For information on registered Coopworth sheep, jump to Coopworth page.

04 2005 Owens Averi with Rosies Lamb 2

   Our flock is entirely grass-fed, except for 4-6 weeks of grain for the ewes in late pregnancy. We select rigorously for good gains on pasture. Ewes whose lambs fail to perform are culled. Our core business is direct-sold freezer lamb, raised totally on grass. In 2015, 47% of our lambs reached 96+ lbs liveweight on or before Nov. 1 on grass alone.
                       TAILS & TESTICLES
   We do not castrate our ram lambs. We generally do not dock tails on lambs destined for meat. Coopworth ewes will be docked if they are being considered for replacement stock or to be sold as breeders.

       HOW TO BUY LAMBS FROM US

WHEN: Lambs are born in February-March, ready to go in late May/early June.

PRICE & VOLUME DISCOUNT: From one to nine lambs-- picked up at weaning-- is $175 ea.  Ten or more lambs is $165 ea. This is for unregistered lambs: see Coopworth page for prices on registered Coopworths. If the lambs are going outside of PA, add $9.50 per head to cover mandatory interstate health certificates and tags.

HOW: Contact us as early as possible: it’s never too soon.  A $25 deposit holds your reservation, the balance to be paid upon pick-up.

GRASS-FINISHED LAMBS PICKED UP IN THE FALL
To have us raise your lambs to market-weight, the deposit is $75 each and the final price is $2.25 per pound liveweight, 80 lb minimum.
