Started in 1964 by Robert and Rachel Erwin at the current location, 117 Acres.
Currently run by Dan and Cris Erwin and their daughters Nikki Jolliff (Doug and Glade Jolliff) and Jacci Smith (Dusty Smith)
Now it has grown to 300+ acres.
What had started out as Bob’s answer to not buying a horse for Dan has turned into a product that has produced 2 generations of shepherds, including a National FFA proficiency winner, and is training the 3 generation now.
The original 1964 flock started out with 12 Montadale ewes purchased for 35 dollars and 2 registered Suffolk ewes grew to 40 registered Suffolk ewes. All of the sheep were sold in 1978 due to Dan’s employment demands.
Focus shifted to swine production for the next 15 years- but Dan helped with several local flocks.
Sheep came back to the farm in the mid ‘80’s as a partnership and long lasting friendship with RJ Creamer began.
Since then the numbers moved from 15 to over 100 commercial ewes and evolved to 70 head of registered Hamps and Tunis Today.
