means that we subdivide our fenced pastures into 2 to 6 grazing areas using temporary fencing. We allow our groups to "eat half, leave half." This frequent relocating of our flock allows the pastures to recover quickly from grazing, prevents erosion from overgrazing, and promotes a healthier flock.
Their diet consists mainly of grass in the pastures, essential minerals, hay in winter and before turning out onto lush new pasture, and a little whole grain. Our White Dorper meat breed is naturally fast growing and heavily muscled, so we do not feed growth hormones. The sheep are out in the fresh air, never confined in a small space breathing each other's air, so we do not feed antibiotics.

We are proud members of the following organizations:
Loudoun Valley Sheep Producers Association
American Dorper Sheep Breeders' Society
We are a small family farm raising White Dorper meat sheep, located on 12 rolling acres convenient to Ashburn and Brambleton in Loudoun County, Virginia. Our sheep are raised naturally with no growth hormones or antibiotics, grazing freely on their lush green pastures, enjoying the sunshine, fresh air and clean water. The Dorper breed was developed in South Africa specifically for meat quality, so it is no wonder our customers rave about our sweet, mild and healthy American Dorper Lamb.
We also have silky soft sheepskins which make excellent holiday gifts priced from $85 to $125.
