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...
I am very happy with my decision last spring to purchase breeding stock from Kind Horn Farm. Kathy's commitment to genetic diversity, animal health and welfare, and organic practices have resulted in a beautiful, healthy, and hardy flock at Kind Horn Farm. I was able to choose a small starter flock that fit the needs of my homestead and will provide a solid foundation for years to come. The yearlings and ram lamb I bought from Kind Horn Farm were strong and healthy, and immediately set to work improving our old pasture land. Kathy has gained a tremendous amount of knowledge about natural sheep care, and she continues to offer helpful tips and advice for raising my Icelandic sheep. I appreciate that all the animals came with a vet check, and all of the necessary paperwork was done in a timely and professional manner. The care Kathy offers to her sheep was evident in every step of the sale process. I appreciate having started my adventure with Icelandics with sheep from Kind Horn Farm.
