We tend a small flock of Tunis sheep at Old Quarter Farm. Tunis are beautiful animals that produce a tender, mild, delicious flavored meat. Tunis are a Heritage breed, currently placed in the "Watch" category on the American Livestock Breeds Conservancy (ALBC) Conservation Priority List.
Our sheep are raised and finished naturally enjoying a combination of high quality pasture, hay, and grains. We do not use growth hormones or sub-therapeutic antibiotics to enhance performance (gain). Their health and quality of life is our first priority.
Tunis meat has qualified as a US Ark of Taste food. The Ark is a catalog of fine foods that are in danger of disappearing because they are not a part of today's modern industrial agriculture system - and only the best tasting endangered foods qualify.
Give fresh, locally grown American lamb a try!
