2005 we expanded our flock by adding three black ewes and a white ram from New York. This enabled us to develop a third breeding line. In July 2005 we added another well-bred small black ram from Washington State near the Canadian border.
The beginning of 2006 brought us the best opportunity thus far to enhance our breeding program. Frosty Creek Farms, Ann Cramer made the painful decision to downsize her farming responsibilities and exited the sheep breeding business. Frosty Creek Farms was one of the pillars of the Miniature Cheviot Breeders Association and we were honored to have the opportunity to add 14 of her best ewes to our flock. We are now the largest breeder of registered American Miniature Cheviot Sheep in the U.S. with one of the most diverse bloodlines in one location.
All of our sheep are registered with the American Miniature Cheviot Sheep Breeders Association, formerly The American Miniature Brecknock Hill Sheep Breeders Association. Although, the registry name has changed the breed standards have remained the same.
As a small breed, they fit well into the lifestyle of those that have limited acreage and would like to have sheep. The small size and comical nature makes these adorable sheep easy to handle and economical to maintain. There are many creative uses for miniature cheviots - weed control, low maintenance lawn mowers, beautiful lawn ornaments, great fleece producers, just to name a few.
