Dayspring Farm is a small family farm nestled in the hills of Southern Vermont, specializing in raising quality lambs for breeding stock and meat.
Our White Dorper Sheep and Katahdins enjoy grazing on our 40 acres of rich green Vermont pastureland and hay fields. These healthy and hardy breeds are ideal as animals for as base animals for quality meat products. Our lambs are pasture raised and finished on a combination of grass, hay and whole grains resulting in a nutritious and high-quality meat product.
White Dorper sheep:
These adaptable sheep originated in Africa as a cross between the Persian Black head and Horned Dorset sheep. The resulting breed is noted for fast lamb growth, heavy muscling, good mothering. excellent mild meat and easy maintenance. Calm sheep, White Dorpers are a shedding breed that are excellent grazers and are parasite resistant.
Katahdin sheep were developed in Maine in the second half of the 20th century as meat sheep that did not require shearing. Katahdin are hardy and adaptable, and thrive on grass and forage-based management systems.
