About the Sheep at Bethel Family Farm 

We raise our sheep on pasture where we move them every day or two to a fresh paddock. This manages the grass so that it is not destroyed by the sheep continually grazing new shoots of grass, and provides the best quality grass for our sheep so that we don't have to feed them grain. 

We raise older varieties of sheep. Our flock consists mostly of Gulf Coast Native sheep which are known for their disease tolerance, parasite resistance, and mothering ability. These traits make them ideal for pasture farms. We also have some Jacob sheep crossed in with our flock. They are also known for their parasite and disease tolerance, and good mothering, but mainly for their multiple horns. Some have been known to have up to six! Most only have two or four, however.
