Vermont Grand View Farm

Breeding stock, lambs, yarn CSA shares, farm stays, classes

Vermont Grand View Farm welcomed the first flock of Gotland sheep into the state of Vermont during the summer and fall of 2014. Our flock consists of high percentage ewes ranging from 81% to 96% Gotland. Through careful selection, natural breeding, and occasional artificial insemination, our flock will continue to grow nearer to 100% Gotland genetics while remaining true to Gotland breed characteristics. At this time, we offer high percentage, registered Gotland sheep for sale, lovely yarn and roving, and hand woven rugs and blankets.

Gotland sheep are known for their lovely gray curls and friendly personalities. They are one of the northern short tailed breeds, which are small in size, yet hardy and full of vigor with excellent mothering and lambing capabilities. It is not uncommon for ewes to have triplets. They have clean black faces and legs and very little wool growth on their bellies. Their fleeces range in color from light silver to dark charcoal gray and fall in soft, lustrous curls. In Sweden, where they originate, they are primarily raised for their pelts and meat.

Our family farm raises Gotland sheep registered in the Gotland Sheep Breeders of North America. We sell high percentage, quality breeding stock, yarn, roving and hand-woven rugs and blankets. We also offer overnight farmstays for those wanting to experience Vermont’s rich agricultural life, and offer custom fiber art classes and mini-retreats.
