You have arrived at the website of Pitchfork Ranch (est. 1986) located in Swartz Creek, MI, where we raise purebred Romneys, Bluefaced Leicesters and llamas. Happy browsing and thanks for visiting our site.
If you are still looking for a breeding ram this fall, here are our last two available ram lambs for your consideration. We plan to bring both to Rhinebeck in October, unless they are sold in another direction first.

We started lambing in the last week of January, and are currently at 52 lambs — with only 4 ewes left to lamb. Here are a few of them. Some are available, some are already reserved and some are not for sale. We haven’t really entirely decided which is which yet, but things will become clearer as they grow.
We normally have more pictures posted earlier, but the weather here has been, in a word, harsh, especially in terms of temperature. It’s much harder to take good pictures when it is -15 or -20 F. We’re hoping April will bring some warmer temps, but until then, all of these lambs are out with their moms with access to a deep, south facing three-sided shed, and handling it well. The spectacle of “lamb gangs” bouncing around the thawing barnyard and pasture is a sight that gives us faith spring is indeed coming.
