Welcome to Gansvoort Farm!  

My farm is located in 
New York’s Hudson Valley, a few hours north of New York City. I raise sheep using intensive rotational grazing on organically-managed pastures with humane and sustainable practices.  All my lamb is 100% grass-fed - absolutely no grain is used for lambs or ewes. I take pride in producing quality products using methods that restore soil carbon and fertility, protect water quality and biodiversity, and provide a healthy, safe and natural environment for my animals.

You are welcome to visit the farm –  I enjoy taking interested people on pasture walks to show them how I rotate the flock, talk about sustainable animal health, and share the beauty of the land.  Just contact me in advance and we'll arrange a time! The picture at right was taken on April 1st 2018 right before shearing.  It was super cold last spring - remember the Polar Vortex?  Still a bit of snow showing adjacent to the barn here.  We are a bit ahead of that this year.  Shearing is on April 5th so hopefully it will be warm enough to take the coats off these girls!

*** Wool Comforters! ***  

Still a few of the 2018 comforters left:  Last year I ordered some made with my colored wool, which are really special looking. Shown here is a white comforter next to the new color which is black wool blended with moorit then covered with white muslin.  It ends up looking very modern.  Colored comforters are sold out, but there are a few white comforters left at Hearty Roots Farm store across the road from my farm.  See more pictures and prices by clicking on link at left "Wool comforters and lamb pelts".  Wool from this year's clip will get shipped to the mill in June.  If you want to reserve a comforter for fall '19, e-mail me.





***** Icelandic pelts! All the fall 2018 skins are back from the tannery. See a selection of them at Hearty Roots Farm Store across the road or E-mail me for details. gansvoort@gmail.com

I am now sold out of custom lamb for fall 2018.  Plan ahead next year!  

***Ground mutton and Merguez sausage links at Hearty Roots Farm Store!.    I also have hogget by the cut.  Hogget is what yearling lambs are called in England and Australia.  More flavorful than lamb but still more tender than a full grown sheep.  Fabulous for a leg of lamb or shoulder roast.  See link at left on Ordering Lamb.

***Felted wool, approx 3 ft x 5 ft squares, all natural colors.  Use as a rug, a throw for the couch, or make pillows, slippers, etc! I have about a dozen left.
