The Merino is an economically influential
breed of sheep prized for its wool. The
breed is originally from Turkey and central
Spain, and its wool was highly valued
already in the Middle Ages. Today,
Merinos are still regarded as having some
of the finest and softest wool of any sheep.
Poll Merinos have no horns (or very small
stubs, known as scurs), and horned Merino
rams have long, spiral horns which grow
close to the head.


Here at Good Shepherd Farm we have five
Merino Ewe and all are colored. The wool
will be harvested in the spring of 2015
Visit our Farm Store to see the Merino, their wool, along with other items that may be purchased.
