The Shepherd's Wife

We raise and sell Border Leicester sheep, sheepmilk soap & lotions, their wool and wool products grown right here on our historic farmstead on Old Route 66. A Heritage breed dating back to the mid 1700s, the Border Leicester has a long established record for providing both delicious, lean meat and long lustrous wool that hand spinners still seek out at fleece shows across the US. We sell white and natural colored roving, some with hand dyed colors blended in, locally spun mill yarns and raw fleeces ready to be washed. We also have locker lambs and breeding stock at various times. We hand milk our sheep and offer some high quality soaps & lotions that are great for daily use for yourself, or consider as a special gift.

And, no respectable sheep farm would be complete without good farm dogs. From time to time we may have an occasional litter of Livestock Guard Dog pups -who's purpose on the farm is to protect all of your farm, and also Border Collies, who's job is to keep order and herd your livestock exactly where you want. (I can not imagine people farming without a good farm dog.)
