The Spicy Lamb Farm Celebrates the Abundance of Life with Local Food, Fiber, and Fun

The Spicy Lamb Farm raises seed stock production Dorset sheep, free range Rouen duck, bees, organic varieties of apples, pears, and plums, spicy herbs and vegetables, and flowers.  We invite you to enjoy our gourmet lamb and duck, honey, fruit, spices, and flowers which are sold off the farm by appointment. Our wool blankets, yarns, roving, and fiber crafts are available at the farm during special events and at the Yellow Creek Trading Company in Peninsula.

This Cuyahoga Valley National Park farm is also the home of the Cuyahoga Valley Sheep Dog Trials, a proud sponsor of Urban Shepherds, and a North Coast Lamb Co-Op member.

We welcome visitors only for our annual special events. Appointments are needed to shop for products. We are a small family farm which makes non-scheduled visits impossible when we are tending our livestock and working.

"A farm should be aesthetically, aromatically, and sensuously appealing. A place that is attractive to the senses. A farm shouldn't be producing ugly things. It should be producing beautiful things. We're going to eat them." --- Darwin Kelsey
