How do we raise our lambs?
Early in life, our lambs have access to a limited amount of whole oats that they eat right alongside their mothers to help with the extra energy demands of lactation, as well as locally sourced hay. These whole oats are fed for 30-45 days depending on the nutrition needs of the ewe. So our lambs are more than 99% grass-fed!
When the fields are greened up and ready for grazing, usually the last week of May or first week of June, the lambs and ewes are let out onto the fresh spring grass. Our lambs are then fed and finished on 100% grass and pasture forage! We use portable fences to rotate them around the farm.
We do not dock tails.
We do not wean before the lambs are 60 days of age, unless their mother is unable to care for them. We use bands to castrate ram lambs within the first 3 days of life, which is the most humane timing for the practice. Our animals are raised using ethical and humane practices- that is our main focus!
