Kind Horn Farm. Certified Organic Icelandic Sheep. Purebred, Registered Icelandic Breedstock.
Welcome to Kind Horn Farm, a certified organic Vermont Icelandic sheep farm. Our sustainable, organic methods of farming nourish the land and our animals. The Icelandic sheep are a medium sized breed of sheep, well known for being a triple purpose sheep: they are recognized world wide for gourmet lamb, lustrous and versatile wool, and amazingly rich milk for dairy and cheese making.
Kind Horn Farm specializes in certified organic Icelandic sheep for sale for registered breeding stock, fiber, and grass fed lamb. We were the first farm in the US to acquire certified organic status with an Icelandic sheep flock. Our farm has the largest certified organic flock of Icelandics in the United States and Canada. Kind Horn Farm is the only Icelandic sheep farm in the United States raising a flock that is both CERTIFIED ORGANIC AND REGISTERED with the Canadian Livestock Records Association. We offer certified organic breedstock, certified organic fiber, and certified organic grass-fed lamb. We are located in South Duxbury, Vermont, in the heart of New England.
We strive to be one of the premier breeders of Icelandic sheep in the United States and Canada. Kind Horn Farm is actively breeding the "super sires" from Iceland using artificial insemination and our flock offers super diverse genetics and high percentages of AI lines in our pedigrees. This translates to top quality animals for breeding stock with excellent meat scores, above average fertility, superb milking qualities in the ewes, and, of course, amazing fleeces. We are enrolled in the United States Scrapie Program, Export Status, which allows us to export both ewes and rams to Canada. Our flock is very healthy, with no history of foot rot, OPP, Johnes, CL, etc.
We are passionate about our Icelandic Sheep and about raising them organically. Our farm works in harmony with nature.

TESTIMONIALS — what others have to say about Kind Horn Farm...
When we first decided to start a flock of Icelandic sheep on our farm, we did a lot of research on the breed and knew that Icelandics would be a great choice for the cold climes of Vermont, but… that’s all we knew! Kathy was so knowledgeable in every aspect of this breed and shepherding. Her website is chock full of information for those of us who have little to no experience; what to buy right off, parasite prevention and monitoring, health issues, lambing, -you name it and it’s there. Most importantly, Kathy makes herself available for any questions well after the initial purchase is made. I have always gotten a prompt and very informative reply to my many emails (and phone calls!) She remains interested in how we are doing and even now will send off a piece of information that she thinks would be helpful or important to note.
We have been so pleased with our purchase of our sheep and the support that Kathy has consistently provided to us. She shares her wealth of information in friendly, yet professional way and has truly been our lifeline in this new endeavor!
