The Sheep Flock - Registered Clun Forest & Clun Cross Sheep


   
     We raise Clun Forest sheep for wool and grazing in our fruit orchards. All of our sheep are friendly, healthy and have names by the time they are 1 year old.
We are the only farm in the state of Hawaii raising registered Clun Forest sheep.
   We keep a flock of about 28 ewes and 4 rams. Two of the rams we have now are registered Clun Forest.
Most of our sheep are Clun Forest with a bit of Katahdin. We have 5 purebred Registered Cluns.

 We sell quality breeding stock, grazer/pet sheep, and woolens made from our sheep's wool.
Visit the Lambs page, for photos and information on the 2019 breeding groups.

    We breed for healthy docile sheep that thrive in Hawaii's climate, have high quality spinning fleeces, are excellent mothers that raise fast growing lambs. Fleece color is also important to us.
Clun Forest are mostly raised for meat and wool, but they are also used as dairy sheep or crossed with other breeds to improve milking ability. Although are sheep are not raised for meat or milk, growth rate and milk production are important to us.

Flock History:
       We have been raising Clun Forest sheep for over 30 years. In 1985, we imported our first registered Clun Forest sheep from Oregon. We keep a closed flock for our flocks health, only bring in new sheep when we new genetics.
In 2001 we borrowed a pure bred Katahdin ram from the University of Hawaii at Hilo university farm and in 2016 we imported 4 registered Clun Forest lambs from Three Willows Ranch in Eugene, OR.
