My farm is located in Lodi, Wisconsin surrounded by the gentle hills of the Ice Age Trail which marks the termination of glacial activity in Wisconsin millions of years ago. Farm preservation land, currently planted in corn and alfalfa, surrounds the pastures.
I breed and sell registered Icelandic sheep, dairy sheep, and registered Nigerian Dwarf dairy goats.
We’ve grown! More livestock, new pastures, yarns and more… 2017 lambs and kids were all sold. The Farm of Beauty added four new breeding rams. Nadil is a 75% Awassi dairy ram, unique for his long horns and fat tail which are adaptive mechanisms for the arid Middle East which is the region of origin for this breed. The Icelandic ram Loki is black gray; Dominik is phaeomelanin. Both were bred at farms that consistently receive awards at regional fiber festivals. Nels is a spotted ram with a cream colored fleece, obtained from a farm notable for parasite resistance.
Clockwise from top left: Nadil, Loki, Nels and Dominik. They join the almost 3-year-old East Friesian ram Marvin who now weighs about 250 lbs., and wethers Miles and Lennon, also nearly 3 years old.
