Katahdin

“Katahdin are hardy, adaptable, low maintenance sheep that produce superior lamb crops and lean, meaty carcasses.  They do not produce a fleece and therefore do not require shearing.  They are medium-sized and efficient, bred for utility and for production in a variety of management systems.  Ewes have exceptional mothering ability and lamb easily; lambs are born vigorous and alert.  The breed is ideal for pasture lambing and grass/forage based management systems.”1

Our Katahdin sheep, Mabel, gave birth to two kids who are crossed with Barabdos Blackbelly, whose meat flavor is said to be excellent. Combined with the benefits of the Katahdin, these lambs offer great offspring and/or delicious meat.
