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

The Spicy Lamb Farm raises Dorset sheep, organic varieties of apples, pears, and plums, and spicy herbs and vegetables.  We invite you to enjoy our gourmet lamb, fruit, and spices which are sold off the farm and, sometimes, at the Countryside Conservancy Farmers Market. Our wool blankets, yarns, roving, and fiber crafts are available at the farm and the Yellow Creek Trading Company in Peninsula.

The farm is a Cuyahoga Valley National Park farm and 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.

We welcome visitors for our annual events, scheduled group tours, and private rentals. We are a small working family farm, not a demonstration farm, which makes non-scheduled visits difficult when we are tending our livestock and working. We do try to keep a few sheep out along the road so that, when you hike, bike, ride, or drive by the farm, you can enjoy this scenic and peaceful setting throughout the year.

The Spicy Lamb Farm is honored to host the annual Cuyahoga Valley Sheep Dog Trials. Handlers see herding page. 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 2015 trials will take place on Saturday, October 17th and Sunday, October 18th. 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. Tickets are $10 per day or $15 for bothe days if purchased in advance. Children arre $5 per day. Order a paid lunch in advance: Saturday Lunch, Sunday Lunch, or Lunch Both Days. Handlers and judges will break for a lunch. Bring a folding chair and dress for the weather. This event is rain or shine. A tent will be up in case of rain. Throughout the year we offer opportunities to learn and watch sheep herding:  Training, Assessments,  Demonstrations, and Clinics. You can also Sponsor a Sheep Dog at the trials.
