Collins Creek Farm, LLC
Katahdin Hair Sheep
Katahdins are a breed of sheep that have hair instead of wool. They shed their coat naturally each spring, sparing the need to sheer. They have much less lanolin in their coats than wool
breeds, which gives their meat a very mild flavor, without the typical "gaminess". They are known for their excellent mothering capabilities and their ease of care. We have a closed herd and only use antibiotics when absolutely necessary, which is extremely rare. They are easy to handle if you are looking into starting your own flock. We offer lambs for sale after they are weaned at four months of age. If you prefer to have the butchering taken care of for you, we sell half, whole or individual cuts off our farm and seasonally at the Hampstead Farmer's Market.
