Persian rugs and carpets are perfect examples of the beauty and
versatility of the Karakul fleece.
Turkish Karakul's are from some of the rarest bloodlines in the country.
We are committed to the preservation of this threatened breed of sheep.
About our primitive Shetland Sheep
Shetland's are considered a primitive,
unimproved breed. As such, although they are small and slow-growing, they
maintain natural hardiness, thriftiness, easy lambing, adaptability and
longevity. Shetlands have survived for centuries under harsh conditions
and on a meager diet, although they do very well under less rigorous
conditions. Having retained most of their primitive survival instincts,
they are much easier to care for than many of today's "improved" breeds.
Our Shetlands were chosen for their
excellent quality fleeces. This was our primary focus as we selected our
Our Karakuls & Shetlands are from
certified scrapies free herds and have been healthy and hardy. They do
not leave the farm nor have we had any additions to our flock.
About our Nubian
We have spent much time and
effort selecting our top quality Nubian Dairy Goat breeding stock from a
very few breeders across the country that we consider to have some of the
most beautiful and correct animals. We are blending bloodlines in our

pasture, and clean living quarters for our livestock. We are a closed
herd. We work hard to maintain healthy livestock.

regular basis. We test our milkers twice a year for CAE. We use a lab
that provides ELISA testing. We feel this is a more accurate form of
We test for CAE before breeding season
and just before our bucks are drawn for straws. We test again a month
before kidding time begins. We follow a STRICT CAE prevention program.
We pasteurize all milk for our bottle kids.
We feel it is IMPORTANT to
provide you with healthy stock. Purchasing healthy animals is a good
start toward protecting your investment.
