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 at the Countryside Conservancy Farmers Market. Our wool blankets, yarns, roving, and fiber crafts are available at the farm and the farmers market. And, our blankets can also be found at the Yellow Creek Trading Company in Peninsula.

The farm is a Cuyahoga Valley National Park farm and part of the Countryside Conservancy program. 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.

Barn News

Since the barn burned to the ground on March 4th, 2014, plans have been submitted to rebuild. The design by architect Mark Smith  of Design Management Architects honors the original barn and keeps the same footprint. The new barn construction could begin as early as Mid-October pending approvals.


The Spicy Lamb Farm wants to give special thanks to all of you for your support and positive communications in this time of rebirth.

We have been deeply moved by all your support – it is wonderful to know that the farm has so many supporters, and that so many of you love the farm as much as we do. It is a privilege to live and farm in the CVNP, and it is an experience that we look forward to continuing to share with you for many years.
