Preserving Heritage Breed Livestock Sustainably

Melwood Farm focuses on raising heritage breed St. Croix Hair Sheep, Myotonic (Fainting) Goats, and poultry. Our mission is to be environmentally responsible while raising livestock using conservation breeding methods and performance-based selection. We believe that heritage breed animals are important for maintaining livestock diversity and food security. We are active members of the St. Croix Hair Sheep Breeders, Inc., the Myotonic Goat Registry, the Livestock Conservancy, and the National Sheep Improvement Program.

We invite you to read About Us, check out the news section for tips and events, and browse our website.  Be sure to follow us on Facebook.

“We have gotten sheep and chickens from Melwood Farm. Their animals are top notch and very healthy. We recommend them to everyone who is looking for sheep, chickens, and eggs.”
