Who We Are
We started raising sheep in 2003 because Rachel loves to weave and Andy dislikes to mow. We both love lamb and when we decided to live a more self sufficient lifestyle we knew sheep were for us.
Rachel is a classically trained chef of 20 years with a passion for animals and fiber. She is studying plant medicine for the family and the livestock.
In addition to the farm, Rachel makes wedding cakes with all natural ingredients and eggs from her hens.

Andy is a carpenter and a jack of most trades. He can build something from nothing and is the master of the quick fix. He does the shearing and is the muscle on the farm.
We are a mountain top farm in the Blue Ridge Mountains overlooking Crozet, Virginia. We are committed to the preservation and proliferation of Navajo-Churro Sheep, America’s first sheep breed.
