Nancy and Tom are not just farmers, they are land stewards, shepherds, mechanics, and artists. They have a firm understanding and belief in the cycle of life, whether it is a lamb, a raspberry bush, their children or themselves. They plan, nurture, adjust, and commit to raising healthy, happy animals, and fresh, juicy and nutritious produce.
The first lamb born at Wind Ridge Farm is Murray. The whole family helped with the birth and immediate care.
In addition to his sweet character, we knew his white, lustrous wool would be perfect for our venture. He became one of our favorites and a standard-bearer of our wool.
Murray also became part of our flock of sheep that keep us busy all four seasons. Summer is the most interesting - moving the sheep from paddock to paddock to graze on fresh pasture has led to many adventures - most involving some high-speed activity and the out-witting of the flock.
Our flock includes purebred Romney, and Wensleydale, Cormo, and Border Leicester crosses. Read more about our wool here.
