ANIMALS AND BEES
SHEEP

The four goats and four sheep are utilized as grazers throughout the property, mainly to reduce fire hazard, as they keep down overgrown brambles, thistles, weeds and fields, while providing abundant fertilizer to the soil. The property is divided into fenced pastures so they can be rotated around when needed.

  • The sheep live in the original Sheep Barn built at the beginning of the 1900s

  • The two black faced sheep are Norfolk

  • The smaller mother and son are Katahdin sheep (don't need shearing), and the son has some Barbados Black Belly thrown in

GOATS

The four goats are on the property also help keep the grasses and other foliage well trimmed. They are living weedeaters, and will eat any and all plants trimmings, garden goods or orchard fruit thrown over the fence. They also prove to be quite entertaining, as they each have their own personality.

  • The two without ears (the breed), mother and daughter, are La Manchas

  • The other two with floppy ears, best friends, are the people loving Nubians

  • They LOVE their Goat Palace!
