Sheep, Fleece, Roving, Wool Yarn… Welcome to our Maine Icelandic Sheep Farm!
Our 17th lambing season was a great success! Over these 17 years 851 lambs have been born on Frelsi farm, but it seems that every lamb born is as exciting as the first. We had 22 ewes lamb this Spring, presenting us with 35 beautiful babies. This could be the year that you add your first Icelandic sheep to your homestead, a new adventure. Get your flock off to a great start with Frelsi Farm’s finest genetics. Or, perhaps you have been shepherding these wonderful sheep for years and it is time to add new bloodlines to enhance your flock. Our breedstock reflects our careful selection for good mothering skills, beautiful wool and fine meat qualities, improved with new bloodlines added to the flock using VAI with imported semen from Iceland. We will have lambs, yearlings and adult ewes and rams for sale this year.
We are enrolled in the USDA/APHIS Voluntary Scrapie Flock Certification Program, Flock ME-02., and have been certified since July 2005. It is no longer required that your flock be enrolled in the program to purchase the lambs produced by AI from imported semen. We are also offering for sale semen straws imported from Iceland, many from rams no longer available.
Our latest “who was bred to whom” list will be posted soon. In May, when lambing is finished, we will post the “sheep for sale list.” So, if you are interested in a particular bloodline let us know early.
