Homestead Farm is a family owned and operated artisan farm located 30 miles from Coeur d’ Alene, Idaho, and Spokane, Washington. We are nestled in a valley of lush grass surrounded by mountains of pine tree’s and strips of quaking aspens. We work with the land and elements to produce the best natural lamb and sheep products that are healthy and beneficial to your body and skin and the environment.
We initially raised Columbians and Suffolk sheep. But soon we tired of the wool that needed to be sheared each year and knew our hard work could be used more efficiently. So, we did a lot of research and decided to switch to a shedding hair breed that gave good growth on lambs, a milder and leaner meat, and a good milk-producing sheep for cheese products. Homestead Farm is now focused on raising Katahdin sheep.
Washington State University (WSU) has been very helpful in providing information and suggestions for proper management and the set up of the lamb growing and milking operation.
Homestead Farm is also Moo-Lah Ranch. The ranch breeds and sells horses.
