Our 100 acre farm is located in southwest Oregon near the town of Selma. Selma is a small rural community between Grants Pass and
Cave Junction on the Redwood Highway. We have a Post Office, store, bar, church and gas station. What more does a person need?
area is an isolated wooded area with coyote, cougar, skunk, bob cat, and eagles that would threaten our livelihood if it weren't for
our livestock guardian dogs. They are as important to us as the livestock we raise.
Our land has been used for farming
since before 1890 when the barn was built. The area was also a logging community set in the Siskiyou mountain range. While we
are surrounded by forest, our ranch is primarily a valley of pasture land. Crooks Creek and Deer Creek divide our pastures and are
lined with trees, berries and lots of goat/sheep browse. Our show quality Angora Goats & Gotland sheep enjoy the shade from
our heritage oak trees and lounge in a relatively mild climate. We average about 100 goats and 100 sheep at any given time.
began raising Angora goats and Shetland sheep in 2001. We started our Gotland Sheep project in 2005 as a charter member of the
Gotland Sheep Breeders Association of North America. In 2014 we still have the largest Gotland sheep ranch in North America
as recorded by GSBANA.
Our white and colored Angora goats and Gotland sheep produce beautiful, silky fiber in a rainbow of natural
colors. We occasionally sell dyed mohair to extend the rainbow of colors available.
We keep detailed records of births, deaths,
purchases and sales of all animals. All breedings are carefully planned. Our animals are tested for Johne's, OPP, CL and CAE and consistently
test clean. New animals are seldom added. Infrequent additions are only purchased from known clean farms and still quarantined
and tested. Animals are released from quarantine after clean test results are confirmed.
We are supporters o those
organizations that work with members to promote these beautiful animals and their fiber.
