Flock History

 

Sarah and I both grew up on farms that had sheep, and we have both raised many different breeds of sheep.  When I first added the flock enterprise to the vegetable farm here in Virginia, I purchased a mix of breeds and crossbreds, basically whatever I could find at a bargain, to make use of the abundant pasture.  But I remember when I was in high school, and we used a suffolk ram on our white-faced ewes for the first time.  We were so amazed at the increased growth and muscle the lambs out of the suffolk ram exhibited. So I purchased an impressive purebred ram we named Scout from Auvilles to breed to our motley crew of ewes.  

We purchased some purebred suffolk ewe lambs from Auvilles the following year, and we were so impressed by the suffolks for their all around production traits, that we quickly decided to go straight suffolk.  We purchased some more purebred suffolk ewe lambs from Bob Kimm as well as the ram lamb we call "Teton" that has turned into a foundation ram for our current flock.  We added several more ewes from Auvilles, MacCauleys, and Tom Slack, but since 2014, have simply been expanding our flock from within and adding the cutting edge genetics we need through ram purchases that you can read more about on the "Ram Battery" page.
