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...
Hi Kathy ~
I just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed the leg of lamb that I purchased from you for Easter dinner.
You were right - it was sweeter and milder meat and the recipe that you were kind enough to share was perfect.
I'm glad I got to meet you and be introduced to your beautiful farm.
Hope to see you again soon.
I just wanted to say thank you for the wonderful leg of lamb. My most finicky son proclaimed that lamb was now his favorite meat, which is high praise. I am sure I will contact you next year, if not before.
This Easter, our plans to travel fell through when my daughter spiked a fever. Suddenly without an Easter dinner, we saw on facebook that Kind Horn Farm would be at the Capitol City Farmer's Market on Saturday. My husband and I headed into town that morning and found Kathy there with a bounty of beautiful lamb cuts. We chose the perfect leg to enjoy the next day. Sunday afternoon our house smelled so good! We roasted the leg simply, surrounded by locally-farmed root veggies. Having grown up eating the occasional grocery-store lamb as a "treat," I was delighted by rich flavor of the succulent tender meat. (And the ground lamb we bought the same day made the best burgers I've had in a long time.) Thank you, Kind Horn Farm!
