Happy Shepard Farm
Why we do what we do!
Happy Shepard farm is focused on purbred Katahdin lambs with registered breeding stock on site. In order to maintain sustainability and animal health the farmr reduces the sheeps access to grain and focuses on feeding hay and foraged wild grasses. Grains are used as a supliment to encourage the sheep to come into the enclosure at night and as a reward during brushing and general health checks.
Forage Feed includes wild clover, apples, raspberries, blueberries, native Maine grasses. Alden and Jen only giving their sheep the required CDC shots at birth and include no drugs or homeones in the lambs diets. Animals are offered assorted natural and organic mineral suppliments and the well water they are provided has been tested for purity.
When questioned about cooking recomendations, Aldin says "God made lamb meat for the coals." The farm's favorite preparation for lamb is roasted over the fire, in kabobs on the grill or seared on a cast iron. Aldin has traveled the world and tasted flavors from many cultures. When you purchase lamb from this farming couple, be sure to ask them for a few recipes.
Live lamb prices start at $200, Butchered lamb runs between $3.50 - $20.00 depending on cut and butcher used.
