Lambs for sale.. click here.
AI lambs (AIs) are no longer restricted to flocks enrolled in the Scrapie program!This is a great year to add the very finest bloodlines and stock to your flock. Our 12 years of lambing with careful breeding choices have produced a wonderful selection of sheep for you to bring home. (see the bringing sheep home info) . We offer a 10% discount on the purchase of 3-6 lambs and 15% discount on a group of more than 6. A non-refundable* deposit of 1/3 the total price the sheep is required to have the sheep “reserved”. Contact us by phone or email to reserve your choices. The sheep will then be listed as “on hold” for 7 days. When the deposit is received the sheep will be listed as “reserved”. If the deposit is not received within that week, the sheep will again be listed for sale. The balance of the purchase price is due before the sheep leave our farm. Health certificates are provided for all animals moving out of state. All animals will be registered with the CLRC.As you are aware, the gasoline prices are much higher than last year. Delivery fees will be negotiated according to number of animals and distance. You may want to pick up your sheep here (a large dog crate can hold a lamb or two) or be part of a group delivery. See our show schedule or contact us about possible times and places.
*if an animal is unfit or unavailable for sale, you may move your deposit to another animal or the deposit will be returned.

The USDA/APHIS has passed a new ruling that will allow the lambs born from AI pregnancies (referred to as F1's) using imported semen will no longer be restricted to flocks enrolled in the Voluntary Scrapie Flock Certification Program. This opens up a wonderful opportunity for increasing the genetic base in many more flocks. And, offers you the chance to add some of our very best lambs, yearlings and adults to your flock. For those of you enrolled in the program, we are flock ME-02 and were certified July 20, 2005.
Our Ewes and Lambs by their side sale begins very soon.. call us, 207-793-4640, for updates on who is available (and when) this year.
How do you build your flock if your farm budget is a little tight? Time, you'll find, is the friend of a farm on a shoestring. You'd be amazed what a little time can buy you. Take a look at a sample farm that wants Icelandic Sheep, but needs time so they can spread the investment out over a period of time. Building a Flock on a Shoestring
We have an explanation of our sheep classes and pricing in our article Budgeting and Building Your Flock.
To reserve an ewe, contact us with the ewe's identifying number. A 50% deposit will hold your ewe at the barn until it is ready to travel. Longer boarding can be arranged. We also participate in several sheep shows and fairs around the New England area during the summer and fall, and transport of your animal to one of these venues can be arranged.
