St.Isidore Farm, formerly Sheepish Green, is 200 acres of pasture and forest near Yarker, Ontario. We have primarily raised for twenty years Lincoln Longwool sheep, famous for their lustrous fleece that is processed into beautiful products.
The farm is named after the patron saint of farmers and reflects our desire to be good custodians of the Earth given to us by the Creator.
Recently acquired, in a welcome partnership with Rob Torr of Toronto, are Lynch Lineback cattle, traditional to Eastern Ontario and known for their milk production and marbled meat.
These endangered breeds are raised humanely and organically in an ecologically sustainable manner with chickens.
