Pastured Lamb ~ Katahdin Sheep
Depot Street Meats raises Katahdin sheep. This bread is a hair sheep. They shed out their winter coats and have less lanolin than wool sheep, making the Katahdin meat mild. We currently offer limited pastured lamb meat shares, and state inspected retail cuts are available in our farm store.
The Katahdin is selected to be an efficient meat producing sheep adapted to a wide variety of environments. While the winter coat provides enough protection for the sheep to thrive in cold climates, their short, hair coat allows them to tolerate the heat and humidity of warmer regions. Katahdins demonstrate greater parasite resistance than commercial wooled breeds, and research is underway to document other performance characteristics.
Our Katahdin ram is registered from Waldoview Farm in Winterport, ME, Four of our ewes are registered stock from Salmon Run Farms in Sabattus and four are commercial stock from CA and ME.
