The Sheep of Wolston Farm
Here at Wolston Farms we raise our sheep primarily for their wool, which we make into a wide range of products and also sell as roving, batting or, at shearing time, as whole fleeces. The largest number, representing about 1/3 of our flock, of purebred sheep are Shetland Sheep. We also have a mixed flock that is primarily Romney and Scottish Blackface based.
We care a great deal about providing the best possible environment for our animals and hope to eventually converting our flock to organic production. First we have to get the pastures on our farm regenerated and producing enough feed and hay to support the flock, finish our re-fencing and get control of some bacterial and worm problems endemic to this area. All our lambs are raised on mothers milk and pasture grass, no hormones, antibiotics, drugs or artificial supplements are used. Our sheep have free access to mineral and fresh water year round, during the winter the pasture is supplemented with grass and alfalfa hay and a pelleted grain mix.
Currently we occasional sell live sheep to others looking to start or expand their flocks or for use in training herding dogs. The full range or our wool products including roving, wool sculptures and much more are all available through our Sheep Thrillz web site. For sheep lovers we also have a range of note cards and other sheep centric products on the Sheep Thrillz site.
