Babydoll Southdown lambs available for new homes

These sheep are so adorable with their big smiles. We have RR codon ewe lambs and rams, both black and white and can match unrelated pairs in same color. See some of these adorable lambs! We graze our sheep successfully in our orchards and vineyards. For more information about that visit Kelly Mulville's blog, very informative.

I recently discovered that the original UK Southdowns are on the UK's Slow Food Forgotten Foods list, which is the UK's version of the Ark of Taste. These UK Southdown sheep are called Babydoll Southdowns in the US to distinguish them from modern Southdowns. The breed is currently touted as a hobby or pet sheep, but can be much more than that! See more info about the USA Ark of Taste >>

For more information about our sheep, go to our Babydoll page. If you are interested in a lamb for your freezer, see more information here >>

Our 36 acre farm is a few miles outside Hotchkiss, Colorado. We grow certified organic peaches, apples and grapes. This website is an ongoing diary that tells our story of farming in Western Colorado.
