Welcome to Homestead Farm!
Homestead Farm is a family owned and operated artisan farm just outside of Worley, Idaho, and has perhaps the largest flock of milking Katahdin sheep in the Pacific Northwest. Learn more about the Katahdin breed of hair sheep HERE, and read our brochure to learn more about Homestead Farm.
Our closely monitored flock is certified grass-

Homestead Farm’s breeding program is designed to improve the Katahdin breed by increasing
size, improving milk production and encouraging rapid lamb growth. This program improves
conformation and increases the number of lambs for market sheep, but we also like
to encourage a more refined-
Ewes can support more (and larger) lambs with higher milk production, and the increased quantity is also a dairy benefit.
Sheep’s Milk Products
Katahdin sheep are above average in milk production, and their milk is naturally rich. This exceptional quality sheep’s milk, coupled with the breed’s typically calmer disposition for easier handling, makes the Katahdin good candidates for milking.
At Homestead Farm we have our own dairy. We produce handmade cheese, smudge (sheep’s milk fudge), and skin care products such as soap, lotions and creams, and shampoos. Learn more about our sheep’s milk products HERE.
Watch the Homestead Farm “Ewe Tube!”
We use cameras located around the property for farm security as well as monitoring the sheep. We stream camera video live online, and the public is welcome to watch. Various camera views might be in the barn monitoring pregnant ewes or newborn lambs, in the dairy, or flock monitoring on pasture.
