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

The Spicy Lamb Farm raises Dorset sheep, 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

Please note that due to road works, you can only get to the farm via Boston Mills Road at Old Eight.

In September 2017, we celebrate 10 years on the farm. 

We have plenty of whole duckling available for your next dinner party. And, we will be getting in more lamb. Email to pick up your duck or place an order for a lamb share. These shares should be ready in early November.

If you can't make it to one of our events, you can visit our sheep from mid May until late September at Mutton Hill  for free from 9-4 Mondays through Saturdays and 1-4 on Sundays at Perkins Mansion on the corner of Portage Path and Copley Road in Akron!
