Cherry Creek Farm
(Colorado Springs,CO)Cherry Creek Farm - a high altitude farm specializing in Purebred Registered Icelandic Sheep products: fleece, roving, millspun yarn, handspun yarn, and pelts. We raised our sheep absolutely as nature intended, without the use of growth stimulants or unnecessary antibiotics - only grass, organic trimmings from our gardens, and homeopathic care. We were the first flock in the nine Western state region to become USDA Scrapie Free Certified, after an initial 5 year inspection and monitoring program! This wonderful mid-sized grass-based genetic breed is the oldest purebred sheep breed on the planet and is legendary for: WOOL FIBER - 17 different color and pattern shades. Dual-coated. Felts very easily. Lustrous, strong, versatile. Classified in the exotic or premium category. MEAT - due to low fat and lanolin content, their meat flavor is mild, tender, fine-grained and rated as 5 Star Gourmet. MILK - Icelandic sheep milk is Europe's secret to world famous cheese and yogurts. PELTS - Icelandic pelts are garment quality with their thin-skinned, pliable hides and luxurious long fleece available in a myriad of color combinations. MANURE - time-released and an excellent addition to your growing areas. Or compost and bag with peat moss or coco and have a local fertilizing product.
