Our 3rd Year of Producing Cascade Lambs

We've had 15 Cascade lambs born so far this year, and lambing season is not over yet!  Today we had 2 sets of twins, each a boy-girl set.

I've got several rams that are "banana peel" shedders, and I plan to use them for breeding this fall.



  1. That is wonderful about all the lambs, I would love to see some pictures.

    We are having our first lambs this year and I'm not quite sure what to expect.

    I have three more ewes to lams and I am expecting all singles since they are first timers.

  2. I am DYING to see some photos! :D Gasp, gasp, gasp... down to my last breaths!

  3. Hey Mark! I'm excited to see you got a blog up. I guess I need to get my Cascade Farmstead sheep before I can make mine. I do have a general farm blog up here:
    I look forward to seeing photos of your flock! And maybe even getting a couple of your lambs if you and Ronda think that's a good plan.
    Oh and do put Ronda out of her misery and post some photos soon. Can't leave her gasping, can you? ; > -Kathrin in Massachusetts

  4. Hello,

    My family and I have a homestead in northeast Alabama and are interested in Soay Sheep. Do you think Soays could thrive this far South? Your farm is the farthest south we have come across since researching Soay Sheep breeders on the internet.

    Thank you for any information you can provide.

  5. I would like to know if they would do well in southern Oklahoma as well.
