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.

"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
