I said yes and the rest is history. I then transferred to Sterling College that summer and graduated in 2010 with a degree in Sustainable Agriculture. After graduating I moved back to Putney with my then Girl Friend and start to raise livestock while working for Harlow Farm. Winter of 2011 we spent 3 months Woofing around New Zealand and then came home and started to buy a small flock of ewes. We moved to Danville 2015 after a friend offered us a farm to use. 2016 Then girlfriend left. That was an opportunity to rethink what I was doing. I simplified the farm and went with just raising sheep and expanded the l flock from 30 ewes to 100. And changed the way I marketed the lambs.
