We are a family owned farm and started raising babydolls in 2000.
The Southdown sheep, the oldest of the Down breeds, originated in the South Down hills of Sussex County England. They were first imported into the United States in the early 1800s. Cross-breeding started to produce larger animals which are today’s domestic Southdowns.
In the 1980s, a search began for these original miniature “babydoll” sheep. A few small flocks were located and accepted into the founding registry. This smaller breed is kept pure by dedicated, experienced breeders. Our sheep are registered with the “Old English Babydoll Registry”
