HARMONY FARM LAMB
In addition to welcoming ALL dogs to my country 'custom care' dog boarding kennel, Harmony Farm Kennel And Lamb located at Monte Lake, near Kamloops BC, is also the original founder HARMONY FARM LAMB, which is comprised of the beautiful foundation flock of hair bred St. Croix, registered White Dorper and Royal White sheep. While the lamb meat business was sold in 2018 (see below),I proudly continue to breed for an annual production of exceptional quality breeding stock as well as commercial hair bred market lambs for sale. Please call or contact me for information about outstanding purebreds to enhance your breeding flock, and premium market lambs available to add to your farm's inventory.

Foundation Breeding Stock
I am pleased to offer for sale, excellent lamb choices of 2023 hair bred St. Croix and registered White Dorpers to enhance and improve your breeding program. These breeds each offer unique and profound advantages. The White Dorper provides impressive bulk adding meat gain in record time (without grain),while the St. Croix compliments with added height and length, smaller bone and less fat, enabling higher meat yields per carcass. St. Croix rams are 'unconditional breeders'. St. Croix ewes ovulate year round for all season breeding, have outstanding maternal temperaments, lambing ease, prolific lamb production and abundant milk supply. St. Croix are great foragers and also have superior parasite resistence. Read our blog post to learn more about the types of lamb we breed.
St. Croix Ewes Prolific Producers St. Croix Ram
This is a closed, well maintained healthy flock. All HFKL sheep are from proven lines of superior 'clean' genetics with excellent conformation, optimal health, ideal gentle and easily managed temperaments and are 100% sound.
I will be happy to put together breeding packages to help set you up with your own lamb production business, as well as supply your farm with sales inventory of fine hair bred market lambs for you to grow and sell as your own. All sheep are not equal and, afterall, it takes time, love and energy to raise them so... set yourself up for maximum pleasure and success by embracing all the advantages that clean health and rare quality genetics have to offer.
Commercial Hair Bred Market Lambs
Simply, hair bred lamb has become BC's premium quality lamb meat. With less fat the meat texture is smooth, not greasy and has a full mild flavour without having that ramey gamey taste or smell to cook.
The result of breeding White Dorpers with St. Croix creates the 'Royal White', which in my experience, is the very best of both worlds... specificially, cross vigour lambs with longer length, added width yet less fat and smaller bone. Even better, they have more meat with rapid rate of gain, and...are available year round. Added height and length provides larger roasts, longer shanks and thicker chops. Smaller bone and 23% less fat equates to more delcious meat and less waste = better value to customers and higher profits for producers. Sheep farming doesn't get better than that!
For your planning, I accept custom lamb orders by September, prior to breeding, so that I can have time to plan your genetics. Call now for more information and to reserve your hair bred breeding and market lambs, while supplies last!
This year I will be lambing in April. All lambs will have been creep fed grain and hay free choice, de-wormed, trimmed and in excellent health upon pick up after weaning in late June/July 2023.
