  • Grain Free
  • Sustainably Raised

Katahdins are a variety of domestic sheep originating in the state of Maine. They are a valued breed for many reasons.

  • Temperament
  • Meat quality
  • Fertility
  • Flocking instinct
  • Hair (which is shed, so no shearing)
  • Naturally strong resistance against internal parasites

We started our flock with help from the good folks at Evans and Evans Farm.
The sheep here at Camps Road Farm live out on pasture, rotating in front of the chickens, feasting on a diversity of vegetation and forage. The only time they go inside is during a heavy snow, and even then they are fed hay. No grain. Not ever. We don’t add anything to their diet aside from occasional free choice trace mineral supplements. Katahdins have become an important part of our system in several ways.

  • Maintaining healthy pastures
  • Weeding and mowing hop yard
  • Rejuvenating grassland
  • Reducing consumption of fossil fuels
