Farm description

This is a "clean-slate" opportunity to start a new operation and grow to become a medium to large-scale lamb producer (500-1000 breeding ewes).

Farm opportunity

Looking for a partner to perform daily tasks and manage the farm. This person must be passionate and knowledgeable about raising sheep in Ontario, they will ideally have practical experience working on a sheep farm. I would like to follow the Cornell star breeding system for year-round lambing but would also consider lambing once annually in the Spring. Open to either pasture-based or semi-confinement.
