HillBillly's Katahdins

Northeast Florida Katahdins

HillBilly's Katahdins is a family owned Katahdin sheep farm located in Northeast Florida.  We have a small flock of full blooded Katahdins in Jacksonville.  We are members of Katahdin Hair Sheep International (KHSI); our KHSI farm prefix is HBK.  We have registered rams and full blooded ewes. The pick of this year's Katahdin ewe lamb crop will be recorded with KHSI.

Pasture Raised

Our Katahdins are raised on pasture and they are given lots of love. We firmly believe that all of God's creatures should be treated with love and kindness and that they should be raised as naturally as possible. We will only worm our flock or use antibiotics if absolutely necessary.

175% Lambing Rate

We are very happy with our Katahdins. They are excellent mothers who lamb easily and have plenty of milk. Our ewes are averaging 1.75 lambs each, even with our first time mothers included in the average. Our rams come when they are called and the ewes and lambs will follow me anywhere (as long as I shake a bucket of feed).

If you are looking for an agricultural business to qualify for an Agricultural Exemption in Florida, then Katahdin sheep may be just what you are looking for. Our Katahdins have been very easy to care for, unlike the cattle that we used to raise.
