Farm Views: Hay Fields & Sheep Pasture

We are anxiously waiting to harvest our first cutting. Hopefully, the weather will soon cooperate. In the meantime, it looks like our sheep pasture needs a trim, too. Our sheep are not keeping up with the pasture.

Pickle: A Herdwick Sheep

While wandering through the sheep barns at the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival, I spied a Herdwick Sheep. I was so surprised! I immediately stopped and learned that Pickle is 76.6% Herdwick and he is part of a breeding program in the United States. I have wanted some Herdwick fiber for a long time and now I have a source. Pickle lives on Helder-Herwyck Farm in East Berne, New York.
