Our Gotland sheep do all sorts of work at the farm.
During the summer they ”work” to preserve the environment and hold the coast landscape open.
During the autumn they give us meat, wool and skins.
In August the sheep are examined and selected for breeding.
At that time we can also see the result of the past year’s breeding.
The beautiful lambskins are sold in our farm shop.
Sale of breeding stock
We have certified breeding stock for sale as far as supplies allow.
The Gotland sheep has its origin in the native ”utegångsfår” of the island of Gotland.
Adult animals are grey with black heads and legs. White signs are sometimes found on heads and legs. Both rams and ewes lack horns. The ewes normally weigh 60-70 kg and the rams 80-100 kg.
Mating is strongly seasonal with lambs born
in the spring.
The lambs are born black but during the summer they turn lighter and become grey in different nuances. One of the breed’s unique characteristics is the curly and lustre wool, a prerequisite for the beautiful and useful fleece.
In our farm shop you will find beautiful sheepskins from our Gotland sheep.
