Katahdin Sheep Breeding & Meat
The Katahdin's popularity in the USA has increased in recent years due to low wool prices and high shearing costs. This, combined with the fact that the Katahdin sheep breed is also resistant to parasites - a trait inherited from its St. Croix ancestors - makes the breed a highly productive, low-cost option for commercial shepherds.

Maremma Sheepdog Breeding
The Maremma Sheepdog, in Italian Cane da pastore Maremmano-Abruzzese, usually referred to as just Maremmano, is a breed of livestock guardian dog indigenous to central Italy, particularly to Abruzzo and the Maremma region of Tuscany and Lazio. It has been used for centuries by Italian shepherds to guard sheep from wolves. The literal English translation of the name is "The dog of the shepherds of the Maremma and Abruzzese region".

English Shepherd Breeding
The English Shepherd is an extremely versatile breed of working dog of the collie lineage, developed in the United States from farm dogs brought by English and Scottish settlers in the 18th and 19th centuries before fancy pedigrees became fashionable around the end of the 19th century. Many farmers appreciated the breed for their versatility and not for their flash or strict conformation to a standard of appearance. These dogs were bred to do various tasks around the farm and not for show.
Angus, Simmental, and Hereford Cattle
Angus/Simmental/Hereford based cattle on grass with little to no grain. With the exception of necessary vaccinations, and antibiotics necessary to cure an illness, these cattle are chemical free. We never use growth promoting hormones, instead we choose to delay castration of our males to make use of their natural hormones. We finish our own beef on grass, because we enjoy the flavor that grass finishing provides.
