Primitive Icelandic Sheep, Multipurpose: Meat, Fiber, Dairy

By

Vermont, United States

Posted Aug 01, 2012

Stark Hollow Farm in Huntington, Vermont raises registered Icelandic Sheep. These beautiful animals are
rotationally grazed on pasture in the warm growing seasons and
over-wintered outdoors with
local organic grass hay &
natural legumes.
We
believe the fresh air, the sun, the outdoor activity and exercise
contribute to our sheep being healthier and
stronger. All this results in very
happy critters and eventually translates into more and better wool,
leaner and tastier
meat, and flavorful dairy products.
These animal are have natural colored fleeces which are prized by hand spinners, consistently produce twins and are truly majestic animals.
