Hog Island Sheep

Sheep for Sale

The only breed of sheep to originate from Virginia, and one of the few feral populations found in the world, these are descended from sheep brought to Hog Island during the colonial period.

We are actively engaged in the preservation of this breed through our breeding program.   Read more…
