We raise American Aberdeen Cattle
Babydoll Southdown Sheep.
Covid was a problem the spring of 2021
The virus made us need to change things.
We had to down size our already little farm.
We were in the middle of lambing season when Covid hit.
We had some really beautiful lambs,
all available for sale were sold.
We sold our black ram, Jacob
to a family who moved to Rolla, Missouri
from New Jersey.
We also had to send Caedmon's black
ram lamb, Kintore to fill an order.
That left us without a black sire for
November 2021 breeding season.
So. . . We bought a new black RR ram
from Iowa. We bought Drake from Jolyn Meehan.
He was bred by Harland's Top of the Town Downs.
Drake has done his duty, and WAS SOLD.
He has moved to the Greeley Colorado area
along with a really nice ram lamb, LT Legolas.
Caedmon's ram, Hamish was repurchased,
and is back on the farm.
He is our black flock sire for the future.
we will only be selling a couple of ewe lambs in 2023If you would like to be put on our
buyers list for 2023 Lambs, you can

UNTIL COVID HIT,
we were adding to our registered Aberdeens.
We bought a registered fullblood
American Aberdeen bull,
Rambling Red we called "Red Bull".
He did a great job for us.
But we have since cut down to two cows,
and we will each year sell the heifers,
and cut and eat the bull calves.
Pepper had heifer calf, Sage,
Sage is available for sale.
Before we sold her, our fullblood cow,
Emerald had a nice fullblood bull calf, LT Andy
we will use him for our new herd sire. . .
Unless someone buys him
Our beautiful little cow, Coriander's.
steer calf from 2020
will be put in the freezer in 2022.
Coriander had a nice heifer calf in May 2021
we called Cinnamon. Born a reddish color,
She has since turned to a shiny black.
Cinnamon is available for purchase.
Marjoram, NutMeg and Pepper's 2018 calves
were steered and we have enjoyed amazing,
well marbled, tender meat from them
Dixie and NutMeg had really nice 2019 calves
sired by Ramblin Red.
These calves were also put in the freezer.
With the difficulty finding a butcher,
we had to travel 2 hours both ways to
get our meat processed. We finally had
The 2019 steers processed mid October.
sadly, Covid really hit us hard. We got so weak. It was
difficult to do the chores, and then about the same
time Marylou was in hospital with covid, Terry had
some stress in his back muscles that restricted his
movement for a while.
We made the difficult decision to sell a percentage
of Ramblin Red, and cut our cow herd down to 2 cows.
We decided to sell all but Coriander and Pepper.
February, 2021 Dixie had a nice heifer calf.
NutMeg had a bull calf.
Both calves sold with their cows.
It was a pretty emotionally stressful day when the
trailer came to pick up Dixie and NutMeg and their
calves. But is what had to happen.
We then had an offer on Emerald if we could haul
her to her new home. We agreed. However,
when we hauled Red Bull to his new home in
Tennessee, a drunk driver rear-ended us just a mile
from our destination, totally destroyed the trailer,
knocked it over backwards, tore up the floor, and
disengaged the center gate.
Miraculously, when I got back to where the
trailer was laying on it's side, looked inside,
and Red Bull was standing, looking a bit confused.
The end gate had to be cut off in order to get the
bull out safely when his new caretaker arrived and
backed his trailer up to ours, emergencyworkers
and sherriff personnel all helped to get the bull from
one trailer to the other. Red bull was amazing. He
even started his new job the very next morning.
Pretty good for a bull that was liberally thrown
But we are left without a trailer as we wait for
a settlement from the drunk driver's insurance.
Chris had to get his pickup repaired. Terry ended up
with a broken 7th rib from the impact.
I, only got whip lash, corrected by our chiropractor.
Red Bull, was forunately uninjured.
We were supposed to deliver Emerald to her new
home in July, but we were still waiting for a replacement trailer.
The buyer finally came to get her,
leaving us with just the two cows
and their heifer calves, Sage & Cinnamon
and our little bull calf, Andy.
