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.
November, 2014: Fall shearing done! Breeding season underway. 9 super-sires from Iceland and 7 farm-bred sires.

TESTIMONIALS — what others have to say about Kind Horn Farm...
"Our start in Icelandic sheep has come from Kathy Boyden in VT, both in terms of our initial breeding stock purchase and in her outstanding mentorship. Knowing from conversations early on with Kathy about the unique Icelandic breed and re: her organic practices that we wanted to work with this devoted shepherd and grass farmer, our journey began with a stunningly beautiful and sound Kind Horn Farm starter flock (which we hauled cross-country to Colorado). The healthiest and happiest sheep imaginable arrived at our farm ready to begin work! And Kathy's support though our beginning shepherds' learning curve has been patient, thorough and unflagging. Bravo, Kathy, for your excellent work."
