The Green Shepherd Farm, LLC in Bovina, NY is a small, family run business raising a growing flock of hardy Finnsheep on fifty sustainably-managed acres in the western Catskills. In keeping with the fundamentals of ecological farming, we strive to conserve our vital resources, making sure we do not overburden our waters, soils and surrounding natural habitats. By maintaining the ecological balance on and around the farm, we ensure the quality of our farmland and lamb will always be the best.
Our farm is Animal Welfare Approved. This achievement underscores our commitment to good farming practices that improve the well-being of both the flock and environment, giving you a healthier and more conscientious meal.
We are raising the choicest tasting lamb. It is exceptionally lean and tender, as well as rich in omega-3 fatty acids and antioxidants. With plentiful fresh pasture, our sheep get to eat healthy, and as much as they want. Lambs selected “for the table” receive no grain or medication at all unless it is vital to their health. We do not administer hormones of any kind.
We are happy to take orders for whole lamb, and our unique Table Selections,™ directly at the farm or via email. Retail cuts and other farm products such as yarn and pelts are available from select shops, listed under “Retail Market Links” on the right side of this page. Shipping is available by special request only, please contact us for details.
