Lambs

IMG_3430

By February each year, our lambing season begins. With about 160 lambs on their way,lambing season consists of many sleepless nights and endless feedings for our sweet new lambs. We leave our lambs with their mamas to get the best nutrition possible before we wean them to a bottle.

Our lambs share large open pens in our warm old barn until they reach four weeks of age. At this point, we set them loose to the open pastures. With a whole new world of smells and sights, some take to their new space more easily than others but soon enough we see them leaping around and basking in warm patches of sunshine.

It is rare that a day goes by without a few cars slowing down to watch the lambs explore their pastures. We find it hard to pass a field without slowing down ourselves.

We sell our lambs for breeding as well as for meat at a variety of ages.

    Hi, I’m interested in buying a few ewe lambs for fiber and milking. Will you have any this spring?

    • January 31, 2016 at 1:01 am

      Yes we will have lambs available. They are lambing now. We sell bottle babies at $25, and weaned babies at $50. At least the wethers. Ewe lambs can be up to $200 out of the better milking stock, they sell after 30 days of age.
      Thanks let me know what age and price works for you as well as any preference on color or milking preference hand or machine teats….sometimes they are very small.

        Hi Meg! The fiber is #1 for me milking is second, I would like 3 different colored ewe lambs if possible. I have access to a milking machine. The younger the better for me!

      The bottle babies are $25 if you are there the day we pull them from their moms, at about 24 to 48 hours old.
      then they got to $30, $40, or $50 depending on how much milk replacer we have put into them and how old. Once they are weaned and out of the barn they are $75 and above depending on weight.

    I tried clicking on the email link but it didn’t seam to want to go through 😦 oh well its probably my computer its always doing weird things LoL My email is attached

    I am very interested in a pair of lamb ewes though at this time I would not be able to afford $200 each 😦 Perhaps some thing from a lesser line would be in my budget. I have been considering dairy crosses or other heavy milking none dairy breeds so even some thing that’s not your top lines would be better than some thing that’s not a dairy breed πŸ™‚ I am only looking to produce enough milk and cheese ( I still need to learn to make cheese) for my family so 2 or 3 ewes would probably be all I ever need, and I will be hand milking πŸ™‚

    I am also a spinner so nice soft wool (white or black one of each would be wonderful) is a plus, I raise satin and German satin hybrids so i would be looking to blend the wool with angora most I produce more angora than I can personally spin so being able to send my angora fiber of to be processed into yarn would be a true blessing, most mills can not process any thing that’s not at least 50% wool.

    I look forward to hearing from you dairy sheep have been the hardest to add to my little farm due to my limited budget as a stay at home farm mom πŸ™‚ I already have Rabbits, Muscovys, chickens, turkeys, pigs and a young dairy ram with lovely white wool LoL but no girl for him πŸ˜‰ Oh ya and hour farm cats and my 3 year old Pyrenees girl πŸ™‚

    Hello Miss Meg,
    I was looking on your website and I was interested in one of your lambs. I have wanted a lamb so if you want to talk, my dad works at the bakery down the street. I would like a lamb off the bottle if you are willing to sell any.
    Thanks

    • October 15, 2016 at 5:31 pm

      Yes we will have lambs again starting in February. If you want me to put you on the list I would be happy to. I will be in touch closer to the time they are born to discuss what you are looking for.
      Thanks so much
      Meg Gregory

      The ewes lambs out of the moms who are proven milkers are $200 and then the first time moms, no milking history, will deliver in April and those ewe lambs are $50 right off the mom at 4 days of age.
      Let me know which would work for you and I can put you on the list.
      Thank you

    Hi,
    I am interested in 2 bottle baby ewe lambs. I have had hair sheep and got a bottle baby EF and I LOVE HER. She is the absolute sweetest girl on the planet and I have wanted more ever since I got her. Love the breed and no one in my area breeds them. Please let me know what you have coming available.

    • April 5, 2017 at 1:00 pm

      We will have bottle babies available on Thursday of this week and Saturday. We had 15 babies delivered yesterday and they will be $35 right off the mom and then as we spend more time with them the price goes up.
      We will removing babies from the mom early am so if you get here by 10 am before we need to do much, even females go for $35. These are out of the first time moms so there are no milking records available.
      Sorry so disjointed not much sleep lately
      Meg
