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

The Spicy Lamb Farm raises Dorset sheep, Rouen duck, organic varieties of apples, pears, and plums, and spicy herbs and vegetables.  We invite you to enjoy our gourmet lamb and duck, fruit, and spices which are sold off the farm by appointment only and, sometimes, at the Countryside Conservancy Farmers Market. 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 part of the Countryside Conservancy program. We are also the home of the Cuyahoga Valley Sheep Dog Trials and proud to be an Urban Shepherds sponsor and a North Coast Lamb Co-Op member,

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

Cuyahoga Valley Sheep Dog Trials: October 15/16th

The Spicy Lamb Farm is honored to host the fifth annual Cuyahoga Valley Sheep Dog Trials. These sanctioned Open, Ranch, & Pro-Novice trials of the United States Border Collie Handler's Association (USBCHA) is a competition in which herding dogs move sheep around a field, fences, gates, or enclosures as directed by their handlers.

The 2016 trials will take place on Saturday, October 15th and Sunday, October 16th. The trials begin each day at 9am with Open (advanced dogs and handlers) competing first. The Ranch and Pro-Novice classes follows until all entries run.
