Waitlist Reservations for 2020 Lambs Now
As of January 2020, all the ewe lambs we forecast to arrive this spring are spoken for. Depending on the gender split, there is a chance we will be able to put together one more starter flock or have at least one or two more ewe and ram lambs to sell. Please go to our Current Availability page for details and then give us a call if you would like to be on our wait list for 2020 lambs.
Not Quite Ready to Start Now? Consider Starting Your Flock with Pre-Bred Ewes Next Year
In fall 2020 we hope to once again offer the opportunity to purchase two or more bred ewes who will lamb on your farm the following spring (2021) without you having to invest in a breeding ram and go through the hassle of making a separate living area for rams until you are sure you want to breed on an ongoing basis. We will sell you two of the ewes we plan to breed next fall and keep them here breeding until the end of December, at which time you will take them home, before they reach late gestation, expecting lambs on your farm in April or early May 2021.
Our farm is in southwest Oregon, close to Medford. If you live within a half-day's drive, you can pick up your ewes mid-day and be home that evening. Please contact us for details.
There is no extra boarding charge or stud fee; our rams cheerfully work for free. But you will have to purchase the ewes in advance at our normal price of $400 each, plus $200 per ewe for a lamb. The reduced price for the lamb reflects the risk you will be taking that the ewe will not lamb, and the risk we will be taking that the ewe twins and you get three sheep for the price of 1 and 1/2, more or less. If you live outside Oregon, you will need interstate travel papers. Our vet will inspect your ewes and prepare the paperwork, and you will reimburse us for her charges.
Although we cannot, of course, guarantee the ewes will have conceived, our track record is excellent. We bred 74 yearling ewes in our first eleven years, and 70 of them lambed. That's 95%. Let us know if you are interested in this option.
